Always breaking something...need some opinions.

I've purchased all the parts/pieces for the M-Tech bumper (facelift wagon) and I was seeing how some pieces would fit together. It only figures that I would break two things.

1. M3 Fog Plug Housing (61-13-8-364-498): Can someone tell me if that little blue part is needed (see pics)? When I tried to fit the plug housing onto the fog bulb, it broke. It seems to hinder the housing from securing (locking) onto the bulb. I decided to remove the blue piece and try a re-fit. Viola! Housing fit's perfectly and locks in place. Am I supposed to remove/discard the blue piece?

2. Air Duct (51-71-7-894-707): Was fitting the lower air channel/alternator duct (12-31-7-503-969) to the air duct when I heard a crack. Can someone tell me how the duct is attached and if this crack will affect mounting (see pic)?

Any help/opinions are greatly appreciated.

Where are all the M-Tech DIY'ers? No one converted from stock to M-Tech fogs or installed air ducts?
