Dust inside my headlights? :(

Just had a closer look at the front of my car today!

Looks as though the previous driver has been doing insane amounts of tailgating as there is little stone chips, literally, everywhere..

but then i looked at the headlights, and aswell as stone chips on the plastic, there is alot of dust inside, is there anyway i can get this out?

Can you fit the extension from a vacuum cleaner through the holes for the bulbs?

Good thinking!

Not sure though, do you know how i remove the headlights? do i need to remove the bumper? or do the lights come out on their own?

I think the bumper goes over the top of the headlight, so it might have to come off, or at least be partly undone.

do you think if i shoved a thin nose of a compressor into it, and blasted air in there, in would come shooting out? cause i can fit that in without removing the headlight, but i dont want to damage anything obviously
