    They all do....mine has - but not to bad at the moment....car's just 5 years old now...Don't think anyone has come up with a proper solution as yet...

    To me it looks like the mould grows in the seam where the inner plastic case is 'welded' to the outer coloured lens(es) and where damp naturally drains to.

    Cheers

    it's a pricey fix at £75 per side replacement every two years!

    I found new after market ones were available on Ebay & other VXl/Saab Car parts sites - 'New Old Stock' they shift from time to time in some cases..... a fair bit cheaper....

    Some Tw*t let their shopping trolley run away in an Asda car we were doing some shopping not 'parking it properly' in a trolley park & it ran into the O/S rear corner of our Vectra missing the body panel thankfully but damaged the light lens... found it when we returned to the car.

    I finally got one from a Local motor factors where I work part time....

    cheers
