Rear backup camera

I have a 2012 Phaeton and when using the back up monitor the lens has a blurred spot. I have not climbed up to inspect but my first thoughts is a broken seal and moisture has gotten into the housing.

Any suggestions/tricks for an easy removal of the lens housing to inspect and replace.

Thanks .......

Not trying to be a smart**s (really!) but have you tried wiping off the camera lens and/or any glass/plastic casing? For the same reason (blurry smudges) we learned to just wipe a rag over the casing on the camera almost every trip - we could reach it from the rear ladder so just took a second.

Those cameras must be bullet proof. Never had one leak or fail on a old 1999 Winnie or my 2014 Allegro. wipe it off and it will probably be jut fine.
