    Is the mould actually inside the light unit or towards the edge??....sometimes the light can be taken out and cleaned round the edge with a thin brush and the mould/dirt will come off.

    Just an idea

    Its right right in the corner where the plastic lens is glued on the unit, but it is unsighty apparently they are sealed units. Spoke to vaux today £66. So is it worth biting the bullet for a geuine light and get rid of the mould!!

    If the mould is in the 'sealed' part of the unit you can strip out the unit and use bleach to 'wash out' the area.... then use very hot (not boiling) water to thoroughly rinse it out... let it dry and refit it. Just go easy with the bleach and rinse like it's going out of fashion'
