It depends on where it's leaking. I had one do that. After I dried it
out, it's been fine since.
It's easy to remove them (one screw and two pull-up straps.) Remove the
bulbs, carefully shake out any loose water, then let it dry. I forced it
dry by using a hairdrier and blowing into one of the bulb holes.
Make certain the bulbs are properly seated and any seals on them are in
good condition. Check all the seams and look for any cracks.
There is a 'vent' on the headlight. I think it had sort of a cap on it,
with some foam behind that, to let air in/out, but not water.

Maybe the sealing o-ring on the headlight bulb is going bad. Change the
bulb and you get a new o-ring. If that doesn't do it, there's a crack at
the joining seam. To fix that, pull headlight, apply silicone sealant at
the seam, and use a vacuum cleaner to pull the sealant into the crack(s)
for a few minutes. Let sealant dry overnight, and then reinstall
headlight and bulb.
