    Title says it all. I have fogged up headlights ad I am looking into cleaning them. I have no idea how to get to the inside therefore I can clean them but I don't see how. Any information would be helpful so please tell me what you know! Thanks!

    I am trying to clean the inside NOT the outside. haha

    You would have to take them apart to clean them. You have a faulty seal somewhere that is why they are fogging up. Let them dry throughly then check the rubber where the bulb goes into the fixture. Hopefully that works, but someone else my chaime in with more info.

    I have some condensation in my headlight... I realise that doesn't help you at all, just had to get it off my chest. :)

    She's gone but not forgotten.
    I watched somebody once take a hair blow-dryer, tape a funnel on the end, and stick it in the hole where the bulb goes. I got bored and left before I found out if it worked or not.
