    Default Mould in corner of rear lights!!!!!

    Does any one else have this, it is only in one of mine but i hate it! It looks horrid! Does it irritate any1 else? And is there anyway of getting it out before i buy a new light!!? Also any ideas how much a new rear light cluster will be from dealers? Thanks guys

    lol, common prob I think mate. I have a little building up in one, its so annoying.
    People have cleared it a little, but dont thinks its possible to get to it, maybe try a pressure washer (take it off 1st lol)

    Not sure how much from the dealers, but new ones can be had fairly cheaply on ebay.

    you could try spraying a fungicide to treat and eradicate the mould, or maybe soak in a mildish bleach solution

    dont forget to protect yourself from the spray....
