headlite washer nozzles won't reattach to arms

On my 2005 e46 330i, each time i fuss with the xenon headlight assy on the passenger side (and remove the washer jets "pulling carefully straight out") in order to remove the trim ring; no problem that far. when I go to push the nozzle assy back into the housing it never seems to connect to the telescoping arm again. it just falls back out. How do i get it to snap back into the arm??

Youre supposed to pull and hold the arm out with some pliers, then fix the nozzle to the arm firmly without the arm springing back. Once fixed then let it sit back.
