Looks like condensation to me, quite normal on modern headlights as they are not 100% sealed.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

Ok thanks, don’t suppose you have the link to hand please? My last warranty issue with the battery was a nightmare!
They are also looking at my rear door protectors, both have fallen off.

Good news about headlights....door protectors are so week unfortubnately cheap plastic ...headloghts are more important and expencive than doot protectors.

We are not talking about condensation...this issue we are talking is polycarbonate issues...look at very carefully pictures. You'll see this issue pretty soon on your bear (actually hope you are not) . Condensation is normal...my new lights are almpst condensation free.
My old headlight some weird round burnin or something inside headlight glass look carefully
My Yogi now 14 months old and I have never noticed any condensation or discolouration on the headlights.
Lucky you, this is the known issue. We thought with dealer that this might be the oil or lube hella use in headlight motor. Dealer promised me to let me know after factory dissambles the headlight...but no news
Above answer is correct..we have several cases in Taiwan now. Lens inside with white turbid stuffs.looks like mold releasing agent or lubricant deposit on surface.....Taiwanese dealer shop takes a photo back to Skoda Czech to apply for new one spare.
