Water condensation inside LED unit

I have the rizoma FE kit, for the last couple weeks, water condensation seem to accumulate inside the sealed brake light LED unit itself, how do I get rid of it without disassemling the unit ?

thanks for any tips

Only way to get condensation in a sealed unit is if it's not sealed.. Use a blow dryer to heat up the unit and try to evaporate the condensation, then find the leak and seal it up.

If you can find where it's leaking you can get the heat in there it will help.. Other thing is put it in the direct sun and that will get rid of it, then seal it all around.

Grab some Permatex Grey at your local auto store and dab it around, you should be in business.

As for drying, compressed air then just a couple days in a sunny windowsill should do it.
