7 Series G11- Spider web in my Headlight

Hey Guys

Was looking at my headlights the other night and noticed a spider web inside the glass. Is there a way of getting rid of this without buying a whole new headlight? BMW UK simply told me to buy a new light 😒

Isn't there someplace to blow some compressed air in there?

If a spider got in there...there's gotta be a hole somewhere. Or at least an opening where components/modules are fitted to operate the headlights.
