Corners fell out. Again.

For the second time one of my corner lights fell out. Has this happened more than once to anyone else or is it just my luck.

Happened to me. One fully came loose and busted in the highway, the other did the same on a busy road and got ran over.

I assume they are the push out ones? What brand are they?

Yes, for a pre-facelift. The one that recently fell out is a Depo. I put them in brand new about 2 months ago. Maybe it's just time for new headlights.

If the part on the OEM headlight itself is good then it's because you have aftermarket corner lights.

Take it to your local tire shop and ask if they can put some tar on the broken ends. Happened to mine and they haven't fallen out since.
