Fog lights hazing

I'm looking at my fog lights and they're hazing very quickly, especially the left one. Should I be doing restoration myself? I mean, the car is a year and a half old, it should still have clear lenses. Should I go bother the dealer to replace it?

It IS soft plastic/vinyl. Gets beat up, especially if you use your fogs alot... Mine are doing the same thing.

I've determined that they've got moisture in them. I'm gonna bring it up when I get an oil change done tomorrow. Hope it's covered. If not, I'll have to mess around this weekend.

tell the dealership you feel it is a safety hazard, cant see as far...etc.
you'll be surprised to see how fast they react.

i had unclear headlights on my touareg, no action until i sent an email explaining it reduced my visibility and felt it was a safety issue. i got a call and visit from district rep and they replaced both xenons immediately.

that's what warranty's are for. I mean Ford's isn't the best to begin with, so definitely use it while you have it.

I told them and they took a look at it today and found no issues. But if it burns my lamin-x again, they're replacing the fogs. I still think there's condensation but whatever.
