Khoalty.com smoked corners not fitting problem
 
I recently just purchased some smoked corner lights for my pre facelift 2001 e46 330ci and they are not fitting properly. They are hanging out a little bit and arn't fully snapped in. They are slide in's and have tried numerous times to rearrange and slide in for them to snap into correct position like the OEM ones but they still continue to hangout a little bit... Am I doing anything wrong? Someone please help

Are you making sure the slide on the side is placed correctly? Mine fits great

that is very rare. khoalty corners have always fit 100%

Both of the rods sticking out and are being pushed into the two slots and as far as the clip it is suppose to fit under the top slot and clip in? It should shouldn't it?

I have had the same problem with the passenger side smoked corner. Just push, then push some more.

It may not make the clicking sound once it snaps in, but it will. Just make sure to evenly distribute your force so you don't crack the corners.

What If they still don't snug in and clip in? I pushed for about an hour and they still stick out.
Its just Ridiculous. You think logically they would just slide in and snap it... Exact opposite

Please take your headlights out, or at the very least loosen them up a lot, then re install, just like our guide recommends :) This will give you the best fitment

I had the same issues as you op with the same corners. Someone suggested here to remove the trim under the headlight, unscrew the headlights and slide them out a little. It gives you more leverage and should snap right in. It worked for me. Good luck.

I removed the trim now they fit a lot better but still Arn't clipped in
Thanks anyways!! I hope they don't fall out but now I don't have to clip them out lol

You're just asking for it to fall out while driving.

You have gotten a bad one but I rarely see problems with their corners. Perhaps it is something you are not doing right? Have you tried taking the headlight out a little bit to give the corner more room?

Mine did the same thing, and khoalty does not give two shits. They (basically) told me to pound sand, but thats nothing new from them. I ended up taking the headlights and and drilled through the tabs and the guides and using zip ties to hold them, now they fit perfect and I don't have to worry about them falling out
