    Just went through some rain in SoCal in my new to me 2006.

    I noticed clouding in the inside corners from the inside both of the headlights.

    Is that something that would be covered under the 60K warranty?
    Coming up on 54K.

    If not, I probably deal with it until I can by another set, unless someone has a idea on cleaning the inside.

    i have the same thing but i did the BLHM. the only way to open it up is to bake the headlights and pull them apart

    I have a little fogging from my 2nd attempt on my drivers HL. (bad bond on the paint). Just follow the BHLM and clean it up

    I have BLHM and I had similar issue when it was raining hard in SoCal last week. I thought of dismantling the headlight to remove moisture but instead I first tried taking off the 2 caps for ventilating holes while driving with headlights on and left them off overnight. I put them back the next day.

    So far, the fogging did not come back. So I don't think I will be messing around with the oven soon. I'm currently in Bay Area, which is raining almost every day by the way.
