Step 1: Removal.

Just 2 screws to be removed here. See the rust inside? Nasty.

Using engine degreaser I cleaned the lens. Then I dried thoroughly. Now it's super clear!

Water ingress caused this led to rust. I replaced with a new led.

I reassembled the lamp with an dose of silicone gasket maker to ensure weather protection. Now the license plate will be well lit!
