Don't suppose they used a foam gasket like the MK2 number plate lights ? if so, water ingress. A guess.

Not had chance to get it off and have a meddle yet as I foolishly spent the best part of 2 days last week cleaning my son's filthy dirty Aygo ... he knew if he left it long enough I'd give it a right good going over :handgestures-thumbup: He been working away Mon-Fri since Oct so barely uses it. I was ashamed to have it on my drive :eek: It's like new now :handgestures-thumbup:
