I doubt that the bulbs are the root of your problem. That looks pretty clean, but before you do anything else, I'd suggest scrubbing the outside. Also, have you actually noticed the lenses getting darker? What you're observing may be normal.

i have taken apart lexus is300 fogs which look very similar to those fogs.

i just stuffed them into the oven, baked at 210˚ for 10 minutes and split the lens off the rest of the housing.


sometimes dirty water can make its way into the little vents that are installed in these fogs.

i used the same technique for the is300 fogs as i did for subaru headlights. my friend wanted the insides of his fogs black, so basically did the "koji mod" on his fogs.

dont worry. the fogs are built the same as headlights.
