There is no vent for the headlamp assembly and in most cases if your getting moisture inside of them then either the seal on the bulb is leaking or there is a leak in the assembly and if that is the case the lamp assembly needs to be replaced. Was the engine vibrating before the used compressor was installed?

Not sure about the compressor. Just bought the car.

Are you sure its the compressor that vibrating or dose the engine seem to vibrate with the AC on?

vibrate when ac is turned on. Stops when off
The headlight whats the correct was to check. Doesn't seem to any cracks.

Have a look at the seal on the bulb socket to be sure its sealing. If its vibrating with the AC on I would suspect you may be dealing with a bad engine mount and or mounts.
