Question about 2005 Chevrolet Colorado
How do i get to it to remove the headlight compartment and get rid of the moisture.. could be a seal problem but getting to it is another issue. it's only on 1 side.
I have the same problem with mine. I havent fixed mine yet but what I would do is remove the grill first, which is required on most newer chevrolets, to remove the headlight. Then remove the light and let it set out in the sun, given that the outdoor temp is warm enough to evaporate all of the moisture. Then around the lip inwhich the clear lens meets the black headlight frame, line it with silicon sealer, and use a razor to trim the excess. Reinstall and should be fine.
Just a guess...its your passenger side headlight that has the moisture, because ive commonly seen that on colorados including mine. Best guess as to why is because that side is near the curb when driving, therefore exposing it to the runoff water from the road.

Usually only requires a couple screws to be taken out, you could invest in a Chilton's manual for your vehicle and it would describe in detail how to change/ replace headlamps and assemblies. you can purchase one from any auto parts store. Here is a link for a replacement headlamp assembly passenger side.

hope this helps
