The best thing to do is to take out the headlight and place it in the oven on a low heat to melt the sealant. Then just reseal the headlight using the sealant that's melted. Do keep a close eye on it to make sure you don't melt or burn the plastic lens. Oh and do it when the wife is not in the house lol lol

there are guides on how to remove the lens but possibly there is blocked breathers just try them in the oven without taking off the lens will dry them out but move the lens around to see if that will reseal them, if you don't fancy taking off the lens just run round the edges with some silicone sealer
