2012 HID headlight haze? help!

I've read post about condensation and seen the TSB but this is not my problem. Both headlights have a haze that I have noticed over the past several months that is getting worse. The haze is inside the lens. It looks as if the lens is dusty on outside but when I clean I can see its inside. I have never had condensation issues. Car is only 2 years old. I took to dealer but their just not getting it. It's starting to effect light output. It like a dirty film inside the lens. Anyone else with this issue? Any advise appreciated. Thx

YEP I had this on my Overland too. Dealer said it was not a problem because it did not affect the function of the lamps. I just posted this in another thread regarding the burning DRL's

I traded the Jeep

I have noticed the same issue with mine, I need to contact the dealer due to the motor stalling on start-up, I will also ask about the headlight haze.

I have the same issue. I assumed it was my burned DRL bulbs

Has anyone figured out a way to maybe clean the inside of the headlights? My DRL bulbs last maybe 6 months and everytime it puts more of a film on the inside.
