mine are full of damp in fact one now has small ocean in it with fish swimming about.
How hard is it to get these out and what best way, assume they are sealed so will need to get new ones.

I have just bought some smoked LED ones, I think you just pop a trim removal tool into the rear side on the unit, or use something that won't scratch the paint, and prise it out

managed to pop them out at weekend, was easy, emptied the water out, stuck a bit of tissue in get most of the damp out and put them back. Pretty well sealed don't know how damp is getting in.
I'm going to buy new lenses clear ones, can't find anywhere though ? Can you get clear but flash orange W5W bulbs for these or they only available orange, clear look would look good.
I've see youtube LED flashing left to right jobbies but seems some trigger warning messages on dash that indicators not working.

I got them out with a teaspoon wrapped in kitchen roll lol. Mine weren't well sealed at all, they fell apart! My guess is the sealant between the outer lens and the unit was letting water in as it was really brittle on mine although they weren't leaking



I've fitted smoked sequential LEDs today
A bit blingy but they look smoother...
