    Default There is a dead fly in my light ?!

    Well, this is quite strange.

    I spent a while giving my vec c a nice clean today and saw a dead fly in one of my rear lights it is about half the size of a blue bottle and trapped within the o/s reversing light, how the heck did that get in there ?

    I remember changing a bulb about two years ago, there are no holes or cracks which I can see in the light.

    How wierd is that

    All you'd need to do is take the rear light off.

    Disconnect the wiring plug, undo three nuts on the inside and remove the light cluster.Take off the bulb holder and shake it 'til the poor bu**er drops out!

    Bu99er that, nick the dyson for a few minutes, whip out the bulb holders and stick the little crevase tool into the hole. Should do the trick.
