    rolleyes Green Algae in my rear lights...

    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know, if once you've taken your rear lights off, you can clean the inside of the light?

    I've got some green algae coming where the rear lights meet the rear quarter panel because I clean the car so much and want rid of it.

    Thanks
    Rory
