Condensation in taillight

Hi - I have a 1990 Honda Accord LX with condensation in one of the taillights. I've been trying to get the lens off to dry it out but the screws are really tight and my socket set doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone know if there's an easier way to dry it out? I don't want to break it, but I've been told it won't pass inspection unless its dry. I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you!

if you can't remove the lens, try a hair dryer on low setting from inside the trunk...pull back insulation from tail light area and try to dry it out from the back side......

Soak the bolts good with WD40. Use good quality (Craftsman, SK, Snap On, etc) tools. Cheap tools don't have the leverage that good ones do to loosen stubborn bolts.

Visit your local Honda dealer for an exploded view of how the taillight is assembled to know how it might come apart.
