A really stupid question about KC lights with stone guards.

Sorry I really hate to ask. This is for those that have KC lights with stone guards. How do you clean under the stone guards? Is there an easy way? Is there a detailing tool that I haven’t found yet? I know that the stone guards screw off but I really don’t want to have to deal with the gasket and the lens popping out every time I remove them. With all the snow and road salt we have in the north windshields and lights need to be cleaned quite often.

If it's like the Piaa's I've seen, they just pop off the sides screws (clipped over screw ends if that makes sense?)

Yes the guards come off very easily, just a twist. However, when the lights are mounted the lens and a soft, floppy rubber gasket fall out. It is somewhat difficult to hold all three of these things while replacing the guard. When the lights are not mounted and laying on a table it is easy – mounted is a different story. I was hoping that someone found a way to clean the lens with the stone guards on.

The KC stone guards are plastic and just clip on (and off).

The car wash works best for me. I do not mess around with anything using rubber/silicone seals too much because they eventually get stretched out or torn.

You must have thr Apollo pros, I think they're the only ones with twist off stone guards.
