Thank you both.. My husband said there is no way to get into the light itself, Unless there is a tool to open it. and you can see the sediment inside He cleaned the outside. I have a feeling we should have done an accident report when we bought it and the seals must be broke on the light . The car is a 2004 and has another year on the door.. that tells me it was in an accident. I guess replacing for new would be the best bet.Thank you again
