Normally fogging in the light lens is caused by a fault in the seal unit to the lens or the gasket/cover at the rear where the bulb fits in is damaged or not fitted correctly, or the car has been through a deep puddle and got drenched and some water got forced in that way.
Best probably to remove the complete unit and check it out and remove the bulb and put the light somewhere warm to dry out or use a hairdryer, then put it back properly and monitor the situation to see if it reoccurs?
The speedo looks to be a fairly easily removable unit according to the workshop manual, but you need to remove a fair bit of dashboard trim, doesnt say if the lens can be removed to clean it inside, but I would think it can be, you need to get hold of a manual to help you do it I would suggest.
