My 2012 MDX backup camera is all fogged up. The issue is internal and behind the lens. Tried wiping it off with cloth and water, and it did nothing. This past winter exasperated the problem as salt/soot makes viewing even worse now. I've searched in the forums for similar issues with no success. Dealer wanted 1K to replace - not going to happen. I guess it is not serviceable...or is it? Has anyone had similar issues? Can it be taken apart, cleaned, reinstalled? What am I to do?

Thanks in advance.

The oem camera is about $700. Although not too tough to install, it does take about an hour, so I'm not surprised the dealer wants $1k

You can replace it with a $40 backup cam off amazon though. You will lose your change views... it will not show you narrow or top down or anything... it will just show the normal wide angle... but it does save a ton of money.

You can also find a replacements on ebay. of course its a bit of a gamble what youre getting, but theres a chance it will be fine - https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-39530-STX-A03-M1-Rear-View-Backup-Camera-Parking-Assist-Camera-Fits-Honda/253065643050?_trkparms=aid=222007&algo=SIM.MBE&ao=2&asc=50543&meid=042774e4f66d4f3dab60b3fb90be9a2f&pid=100005&rk=6&rkt=12&sd=253072979061&itm=253065643050&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
