If the car is old enough and you don't care you can drill three holes in the base of the front of the light to empty it out so you don't have to change the bulb constantly due to it flooding as i did or you simply can go to the dollar store and get some gasket stuff and take it apart and dry it and the use the gasket stuff to permanent seal I am going to try this myself as i have heard of this and will let you know further in a day or so plus i have to fill the drill holes because i still have the holes and that causes condensation but not the flooding that was burning out the bulbs.

You cant. unless you can get a paper towel on the end of a coat hanger wire . the the reason it has moisture in it, is because there is a crack or the headlamp is no longer sealed and will need replacement.

How to fix a ball joint in a ford tempo


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The lower ball joint is integral to the lower control assembly and cannot be serviced individually. Any movement of the lower ball joint detected as a result of inspection requires replacement of the lower control arm assembly.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the nut and bolt securing the ball joint to the steering knuckle.
  4. Remove the nut and bolt securing the control arm to the vehicle sub frame. To install:
  5. Install the control arm assembly to the vehicle sub-frame using the nut and bolt. Tighten the nut to 69-86 ft. lbs. (93-117 Nm).
  6. Install the lower ball joint into the steering knuckle and secure it with the nut and bolt. Tighten the nut to 32-43 ft. lbs. (43-59 Nm).

1999 ford taurus with moisture in the headlights


Most headlights lens are sealed up to prevent this problem. A broken seal or a crack somewhere opened up to let in moisture.
You can drill a small hole on the lowest part of the plastic headlight housing to let the water drain out. Or, replace the plastic headlight assembly with a new sealed one.The plastic headlights turn yellow and cloud up over time (not because of moisture inside, because it's plastic getting ruined by the weather and the sun). This problem reduces headlights from putting more light on the road.
The only thing you can do with moisture inside the headlights is to drain out the water that builds up. The seals on the headlights are bad right now and are going to keep letting moisture in. I would replace the both headlight assemblies for new sealed, clear ones.
