    not really sure the technical term for what this piece is. but behind the bulb there is a thin steel piece that is bent and clipped into place to hold the bulb in. that whole thing snapped off so its being held by duck tape and my bulb is aiming high now and looks uneven.

    does anyone have an extra piece that i can buy or know of any sticky substance that is strong of this to hold it?

    LOL actually you're in luck. If it's just the metal clip, that looks kinda like a messed up paperclip.

    I have 2 of them at the moment. I cant put it in an envelope bc it'll poke right through. If you cover shipping and materials, I'll gladly send it to you.

    ok so i looked behind my head light today and its not just that piece.

    +1 WATacoRider for sending that piece.

    but its also actually a really small plastic piece holding that metal piece in place.
    does anyone know a really strong adhesive that can hold a really small plastic piece in place?

    Does anyone know where I can get the replacement spring clips? I went to change my bulbs yesterday and found one of the spring clips missing.
