Issues with dirt and grime on seams of rear arosa lights. Help?!?!

Recommended Posts

I've recently noticed a build up of green algae/grime on the seams of the outer casing of my rear lights lights. It has hardened so it's not a soft thing you can just wash out and it's managed to get to a bit where you can't fit in anything to get it out. Anyone else had this problem and any ideas on how to clean this? Can get pictures if needed.

And just so you know, that green is on the inside of the plastic, trust me if it was on the outside id have cleaned it by now. You can see the seam where its ran into.

Moisture, warmth = algae or some sort of bio stuff. Maybe there is a small leak in your light? If not take it off take out the electric part. Fairly liquid and then dry it. Re assemble and your done.

Cilit bang is pretty harsh stuff. The water could dilute it but it looks alive so a good anti bac like fairy I think would kill it I think.

I think I'm the only person who likes arosa lights. I don't like the boring lupo lights on arosas. Dates them IMO.

For some reason the Arosa lights seem to collect water, especially in the back left. A friend of mine also has the same problem, as do I. I have to take my light and empty it quite frequently.
