    I ordered a set of replacement OEM headlights. Got them in the mail just the other day and when I opened them up, I noticed a small piece of the gray plastic (part of the clip area) that surrounds the casing was broken. Not a large piece, but still a broken piece. Is this a big deal? I had planned to replace both my headlights this weekend w/ the new ones, but now I'm wondering if I should send the new ones back. Please help a sista out! And please keep in mind that I am pretty challanged when it comes to techy talk....dumb it down please. :D

    I am willing to help fellow Norf Cackalackians.

    Does it affect the function of the headlight? Pictures would be helpful, but please make sure the headlight isn't making a duckface.

    Could you possibly post up a picture? The bottom lowest tab, the one that goes at a right angle to the headlight, wont really matter when you install the new lights. Most people who replace the lights don't bother to put that screw bacause it is kind of tough to get at. I think if it were me, I'd probably send them back, you probably paid a lot for them.

    Well, what blows even more is that I just opened both of them and one is the regular OEM while the other is a BHLM one. Looks like I'll be making a phone call tomorrow. The BHLM looks pretty sweet, but I've heard so much bad stuff on here about fogging, etc.
