Question Droplet found within the high beam light

I just got an Mercedes E300 for a few days ago. The car was parked on my parkway last night. Today morning, I discover that there are some condensed water inside the plastic cover of the high beam light. I don't see this happen in my Toyota Camry.Have you heard such phenomenon? Do you think the high beam light needs to be replaced?

Happened to my Camry but there was a reason: some object had broken the glass so there was a hole in it. Water is obviously getting into your headlight assembly somehow. If you see no holes in the plastic cover or a rotten rubber gasket surrounding it, check the back of the assembly to see if there is is any breach around the wiring to the bulb socket.
