    Have some issues with some upgrades i wanted to do to it. One being i just put in some new hid kits. fogs and the headlights. issue i am having with the headlights are the rubber casing that is around the light bulb that was originally in the vehicle. There seems to not be a exact way to fit them in tightly other than using the rubber inserts. They bulbs are shaking and not tight. any suggestions?

    Thanks. I will take a picture this weekend if i dont find some way to fix it. Just to give u a mental image of the problem. It is the main headlights. there is a rubber plug with a hole. The original stock bulbs are inserted in the hole and then they have the metal clips that hold them in place. When i installed my hid lights. i had to remove the clips and the only thing holding the lights now is the rubber plug with the hole. The rubber plug is not giving the bulb a firm fit in the hole, so my lights are moving around and unstable inside the headlight..
