depends where it is. i bought some blackline tail lights used off a forum member and a day later noticed a bug in the housing...he must of gotten trapped in at the factory because that area is sealed and there is no way to access it..id have to drill a hole.

I would take the tail out off and remove the bulbs. The tail light only has 3 screws holding it in. You could probably try to shake it out at that point

Try using a dust-buster (or vacuum cleaner with a very small attachment thing) and putting it in the bulb opening. It might work!

I'm also a member of the "bug in the tail light" group. Now that I know it's there, it drives me crazy. I'm going to have try and get it out soon!
