Recommended Posts

Hi guys, ive just bought a 2010 Toyota Aurion Touring Auto MY10, it has clear tail lights and I noticed there are a heap of bugs in them.

A) How do I get them out?

B) How do I stop them getting in again.

Thanks in advance for your help

I am expecting that the tail lights are just about a sealed unit but the bugs must have got in by some means e.g. drainage vent/hole.

I would try removing a tail light and then using a vacuum cleaner to try and suck the bugs out.

I agree with the above.

i had a similar issue with my 40 series.

i used a combination of vacuum and air line.

so basically remove it the put the vacuum over the bulb hole and suck out what you can, don't seal it off completely allow some air to get in other wise you won't get anywhere.

do the same with the air blower.

Or if you have done the rear fog light mod, put the vacuum over one hole and make sure it's as sealed as possible, and use the blower in the other.

 

as for not letting them back in, just make sure it's sealed up completely when it goes back in and regularly wash your car and never park near trees.

There's the problem, they need to breathe or condensation builds up. This speeds up corrosion of the bulb carriers and wiring.
