    What year and model?
    Might be able to clean the inside if with the bulb removed you can get a piece of teri cloth and a long screw driver to push it around.

    I agree with joel….should be able to remove the bulb and get inside with something like a long handle of a wooden spoon or something. Maybe with windex on a small piece of microfiber towel and dry with air nozzle maybe.

    Easy to clean (and it is not a warranty item). Remove the bulb, and put a small windex soaked rag into the lens assembly. I use a coat hanger wire with the end looped to prevent scratches to get the rag all around the edges.. After a good cleaning, remove the rag and dump some isopropyl alcohol in and swish it around good. Dump and let air dry. Done.
