Misty spotlamps

I've just fitted a pair of Wipac 8 inch spotlamps (they have 100w bulbs
fitted as standard). When I turned them on for the first time I
noticed the inside of the glass lens has somehow misted up so the lamps
now have a foggy appearance. It's not water vapour so hasn't
evaporated off. Hard to clean them as the only access to the inside of
the glass is through the hole where the bulb fits. Anyone have any
idea what caused this, and how to clean them? They're brand new but
now look years old :(

around it and stuff it thru the bulb hole, carefull wipe away the
mess. job done.

Re: Misty spotlamps

I've been told by a mate that is an engineer at Hella that swishing some
metho around in there will do the trick. Haven't tried it myself...

Cheers, Clax.
