Headlight Fog??

One of my headlight lens is beginning to develope a fog or haze. Is there a (easy) way to get rid of it? I have seen kits available but appears to be inside. 2006 Sedan. Thanks All! - Steven

Assuming you are referring to condensation on the interior surface, driving with the headlamps on will revaporized it & force it out the air vent.

My lenses fog up too, it's simply caused by sunlight and there are many kits out there that will fix, albeit temporarily, the problem.

I used to have my local carwash clean them for $15 and that would buy me 8-10 months before needing another treatment, but I found a kit from Turtle Wax that does a great job and is less than $10.

You can remove and disassemble them to try cleaning the inside but that is a pain in the neck. Or purchase new ones (unfortunately they are $100 each for OEM!).

It's like a light bluish tint, not a yellowing color. What causes this condition?

I've only replaced them...never tried to restore one. The problem with the kits is they remove the UV protective coating on the lens surface. Amazon has them for somewhat less than a dealer (can't speak for the quality):
