How to remove condensation from rear lights on volvo v40 r design Pro 68 plate?

The condensation is mostly covering the lights but it doesn't affect it when driving (if that makes sense)

    If it's on the outside, just wipe it off with a cloth or a paper towel

    If it's on the inside have the dealer take a look at it, and perhaps need to fit replacement units under warranty.... recently had to try replace a brake light bulb on my Dad's 2001 V70, and found the unit flooded with water.... spent hours trying to get the damn thing off to inspect the seals + drain it (and retrieve the bulb that fell off into it).

    Trust me, you're better off letting someone else deal with the hassle.........

    I expect the seals are perished. You could try and renovate the seals with silicone spray. If that doesn't work drill a very small hole in the bottom of the lens. This will drain any water present.
