Turn signal housing went dark?!

Hey, anyone experience this? I'm pretty sure this happened around the time I took my 2002 9-3 to a full service car wash. The passenger side amber signal housing went DARK. The other side is still light and reflective.

The dark part is the inner, rounded part that reflects the bulb's light. Very strange. I stuck my finger in there and there's no water, no burned bulb, no soot. I can't say it looks bad but it looks different than the other side and different than pics of the same taillight that I took last month.

What the heck is going on?

Oh, this is the rear tail light. The only section affected is the turn signal with the amber bulb
Do you have pics of it???
Sounds like some chemical got it and de chromed it.
