Not sure exactly what they are called so a search did not bring anything up.

Has anyone got problems with dirt inside the rear light lenses. It's not too noticable on mine (09 reg) but it is most of the way round the inside right at the edges, obviously where it meets the car. Sorry if my explanation is not to clear.

I had the same thing on my 07 plate. Its where water has gone in and some moss has built up. I used a tooth brush and loosened the lights, then cleaned around the edge. Looks much better.

Side lights are held with a single bolt and really easy. So 5 mins including cleaning per side light.

Centre section is 12 bolts and you either need to remove all the boot lining, bend around the plastic or drill through sections to get access. The bits you drill are under the access panels and cant be seen. This is an hours job.

I cleaned with fairy and vinegar using a toothbrush. Got 95% of it out :)
