Cloudy Speedo Plastic and Third Barke Light Issue

I'm puzzled and New to the Forum...

I have a 2009 CLS 550 AMG and the center plastic of the 3 gauges is milky or cloudy. The clock and the tach are clear. The pictures below show the haze, but it's when you look at the smaller gauges compared to the larger center gauge you can see the hazing. Anyone have any insight on why this is happening and how to remedy the situation. Have no idea how this happened. At times I can see the shape of a star type figure in the haze.

Second, I have a third brake light issue as well. It just doesn't work for some reason. Was intermittent then stopped. Any insight on this would be helpful as well.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Welcome! This should be posted in the C219. As far as your gauges becoming hazy it could very well be the Florida humidity. I had it happen on my CLK320. I took the gauge cluster out and cleaned it basically and it went away. It goes away also in the cooler months. 3rd brake light issue is basically your center brake light LED in the rear window that is bad and needs to be replaced. Your third issue is your Key Fobs need new batteries. You can get them at a CVS or Publix like I did.
