In the link provided, someone actually suggested a quick and easy fix to this problem without having to take the headlight and bumper off.

Unfortunately for me and many of us, due to the heavy rain and the temp-drop recently, one of my 08s headlights started to condensate :/ and I was too chicken to pull my car apart, so I did what the guy suggested by removing one of the bulbs and tried and dried it out. Instead of only introducing warm air, I actually used a mix of cool hair(didn't want to melt anything) from a hair dryer and also used a vacuum cleaner to see if it works.

The little lamp was probably the only accessible bulb there was and it was really easy to take out. After that, I could see the edge of the highbeam bulb, so I knew I had access to the sealed space. I started using the vacuum for about 5 mins to suck some of the moisture out, and then I used the cool dryer for about 5 mins, used the vacuum again, left the garage for some lunch. When I got back, all the condensation was gone, so I put the bulb back and was happy with it.

Although it doesn't fix the problem permanently, it didn't take me long to do, so why not. The only annoying thing is, you can see the dried water marks, but I'm happy with the result.

Thank you for the reply,

It is not that hard to remove the bumper.
