    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Default Best way to clean the muck in lower edge of rear lights?

    Must be common this! Seen it on a few Vectra Cs now.

    I want to do mine... its bugging me! So i was wondering, is there a tried and tested way? I'm thinking its lights out jobby! But what did you guys use to clean them out?

    Cheers

    Mine is going the same, and I think you will need to remove them to really get into the crooks and nannies.

    I remember reading on here that someone took them out and cleaned them then ran a small amount of clear silicone down the edge and it stopped the mould from coming back.

    Right... lights out it is then! Looks a bit more of a faff than on the B! All the paneling in the boot to hide them!
