    Question Aftermarket replica light units

    I think I need to replace the rear lights units on my SRi. There is green mould in the corners where the unit has been fused together. there is no way to get the two halfs of the units apart without breaking them. If anyone has any tips on cleaning them or where I can source very good quality aftermarket units I'd be greatful. The green fungus is not inside the light units its just in the little crevasses in the very edges where the two halfs have been fused together.

    Cheers.

    Did you have the same problem?? I'm not sure the water would irrigate the little gap where the fungus grows

    Cheers I'll give this a try, did you use soap or anything?
    I wouldn't want to try deturgent or something and damage them e.g. ruin the finnish
