Per-face sedan corners

So I want to know if anyone has the same problem as me with the corner lights popping out on the highway? I have tried sealant and they still popped out... Any help please..

You seriously tried sealant? I'm assuming you have aftermarket lens and did not install them correctly

I had an OEM clear pop out on night at about 100mph and smash on the road. Make sure they are pushed in all the way. They shouldn't come out unless you used a screw driver, or a clip is broken.

ha this has happened to me. My oem fell off on the interstate because the clip was missing. Depo makes decent aftermarket corners... OEM recommended. Don't use sealant. I understand your frustrations. It's a kind of a design flaw.

You can loosen your headlamps and slide them out just a tad bit, so that you're able to push the corners in so they seat properly.

Buy those headlights with corner built-in and never worry about it falling out like a 12 years old junker.

Clips are probably broken, or won't hold well if there are aftermarket.

I would rather **** on my car, and then eat that **** than install these. Hey, check ebay, for a OEM [OEM ONLY.] corner, or [What I suggest] check the Sponsers, most of them have pretty good stuff.
