Cloudy Headlight Lense

Anyone have any suggestions on how remove cloudy buildup on inside of headlight lenses? My passenger side lense seems to have developed some sort of haze on the inside. Is the headlight housing (OEM HID) removable to get a clothe in there to wipe the haze? Hoping I can just pull out the HID housing without removing the whole headlight assembly.

I already experienced this situation with my 300c in Nov. of 06. The moisture will not dry out. DCX will honor the replacement under your warranty. A precedent has already been set since I had the photos taken by my dealership and sent to DCX. There are a couple of threads in the forum outlining my moisture and the replacement process.

Good luck. Honestly, you should not have to wait on this approval.

Mine is actually a dry haze. No moisture at all in the lense. Almost looks like the glass on the inside is dirty like the inside of a windshield gets at times (not that I "ever" allow that to happen, LMAO). This does not seem to be a moisture problem as usually happens with enclosed light housings.

It's a broken seal in the housing. It can be fixed, but it's a real pain and usually does not last too well. I'd try to get it replaced by dealership.
