Are you sure its on the inside of the lens? Try some plastic polish on the outside.

maybe spray something through the light bulb opening? just an idea then with an air gun dry it out. might be worth a try, im certain you'd need to be careful what chemical you used, and not to get it on the chrome in the back, it would prolly spot it.
