    They are slightly finicky to install. I don't remember exactly, as it's been awhile since I have pulled mine off.. But I do recall having to slide the filter into something sideways, and then push the other end into a clip/retainer of some sort.

    You might be missing a bit on the right side, where that discolored circle and hole are.

    Do you have the opposite side intact, or are you missing both driver and passenger fillers?

    I am but but the tab with the whole in it will not let it sit flush under the light, which these are aftermarket lights.

    If I can find the one that fell out I'll see how different it is. Whatever aftermarket ones I have popped in fine but they didn't like to stay in place, I was constantly popping them back in when I'd notice they were falling out. Then 1 side surface rotted itself terribly and it's in my shop somewhere. I just figured OEM was a far better fit because the ones I have suck...
