Rubber boot cover on the back side has a crack or is letting water get in some how.

To clean the haze off of it believe it or not take some off deep woods bug spray and spray it on a cloth and wipe it on there really well. Then wipe dry. And you're done.

Sir, I had the exact same issue with my wife's van headlight. The problem, seal went bad and let's moisture in. I fixed that issue real easy. No more moisture like you have.

Solution was I took my cordless drill and drill bit and placed a small hole into the lower side of the headlight covering. No one can see it unless your looking for it. That way air can get in and dry out the moisture. Problem was fixed!

That's what mine looked like when I got it. Chances are the moisture has damaged the inside of the lenses (unremoveable hazing, at least in my case). The seals on our lights suck. Easiest fix is to replace them and be sure to seal the new ones before install, they're not that expensive, and will be noticeable immediately and last for years.

Let them dry out, pull them and lay silicone over all the seal areas. Worst case you can always bake them open and do a full restore on them and seal them back up and then silicone them and you'll be G2G.
