E61 headlight condensation

Hi all I have recently purchased a 08 e61 520d the only fault I can find on her is the passenger side headlight has condensation on the inside! Has anyone seen this before/ have a way to fix it without replacing the whole unit?

Does the headlight work otherwise? If yes, pop all the covers off of it and use a hairdryer on the lowest setting to blow some air in there. Be careful not to melt anything. It will take a bit of time, but be patient. Once all the condensation is gone, check the seals on all the caps to make sure they are intact, then re-install the caps and you should be good to go.
