Headlight vent tubes

Any good suggestions on how to clean them out without blowing crap into the headlights or sucking in whatever is in there, likely spider nests.

Any sort of turkey baster type thing could be rigged up. A small vacuum pump too.

Re: Headlight vent tubes

take out the bulbs before you start - I used a small fish tank pump to suck the gunk out of mine.....
