Backup Camera Not Clear

Anybody know if the camera lens cover can be taken off? My view is rather hazy and the exterior lens is clean, even tried some Plastix plastic polish commonly used on helmet visors but still hazy. I have a feeling some dust/humidity got behind the lens. If there is no way to open this up, I guess a trip to the service centre may be in order. Used to be crystal clear when new. Anyone else have this issue?

I'd guess that the lens is fixed, but this would be good to know. Maybe try taking a blow-dryer to yours to speed evaporation?

Mine has been fine so far, but I haven't had to deal with real winter conditions. This winter has been relatively mild with some rain here. I also try not to rub my camera lens and only spray it when washing.
