You need to contact your original retailer for support - email or phone is best.

The P46 headlights were modified to fit on the facelifted sedan. The trick was cutting the locking points on the side of the headlight therefore there is nothing where the corner can clip or screw. In other words they are loose (I have zip ties). I've seen somebody fabricate a lil arm where I would be able to put a screw but I can't seem to find that thread anymore.

Any help and feedback from vendors and other fanatics that had this problem would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Oh, ouch! There aren't any clip-in style corners available for face-lifted sedans? I have tried and failed at transplanting P46 insides into an OEM headlamp housing. They are not built with the same internal mounting points.
