Fly in rear LED lamp lol - warranty?

Hi!

Today I was removing the 320i emblem in my car and I noticed that.. I've got a dead fly in my rear right lamp

Do you have any ideas how did it come into the lamp ? and how to remove it?

My car is still on warranty and Im wondering if I go to dealer would they handle it under warranty repair somehow? Because as far as I know it shouldnt be there

If it helps at all I can tell that I have the same problem in my F36

At least in my case compressed air did not help. So far it has not bothered me enough to remove the lamp, maybe next summer...

Im just after dealer on site visit. I've spoken with a guy that is handling my service and he was kinda shocked about my "friend" in lamp
He didnt know the answer though but he called more experienced service worker and he said that if my car has warranty(it does) they will handle it under warranty repair
They will try first with compressed air and if this wont help they will need to take the lamp off and take a closer look onto it. Im driving my F30 to the service on thursday

I took it to my dealer here in Austin TX and they said that it is not covered under warranty and would cost $575 for them to disassemble and remove the spider that is in my tail light.

Damn... thats not good. Wondering why there is different approach in US and here in EU. Can I help you somehow? My car is right now at the dealership and they are replacing light just now. Maybe I can take a picture of documentation that ill get and send it to you so u can show it to them? However it will be in polish
