I have just ordered some lens repair film, this will cover the crack and prevent water ingress.

Glad you found it was the "o" ring. I was going to suggest that you drill a weeny drain hole right at the very bottom of the lens to let the water out... angled down of course. And put a drip loop in the cable to the lamp to minimise the water getting in.
