Default Cloudy headlight

Anyone else having a this problem. Mine has a slighty cloudy headlight which i think is affecting the beam. Are they a sealed unit and if so can they be opened up easily, cleaned then resealed?

just stick a hairdryer in the hole at the back to dry it out,then make sure the rubber boot/cover is on.

as trem says...you cant take them apart as they are vacuumed units.

someone did say for a tip is to stick the silicone gel that you get with clothes in there (away from the bulbs obviously)
