i also did this when installing my depo engel eyes,theres a lever on the inside like you mentioned that needs to be flicked to change from LHD to RHD.

they come from the factory set as LHD

the lever's needs to be in the up postion (when the lights are on the car) on both headlamps for right hand drive [Y]

That will be your problem. You need them set for right hand drive, so they point to the left as you sit in the car and look out [Y]

I had condensation on my drivers side light every time i got the pressure washer out, there are gromets on both headlight just above the dipped beam. Best idea i had was to take the gromets out on a dry day/night and drive everywhere with lowbeam on to evaporate any water end of the night put the grommets back on but was only a short term fix. mine to be re-sealed to eliminate this problem.

If you have just fitted them on a cold damp day they will have moisture trapped inside, dry them out and they should be fine.
