    First Gen: HID Bulb Replacement

    Upgrading the headlight bulbs, and currently working on the drivers side. Old HID (D2S) bulb is out, and new one is in. The problem is that the spring clip that holds the bulb in place, isn't holding the bulb in place. I can wiggle the bulb by hand; probably a 1/16" of play. The old bulb does the same thing, so I'm sure I've done something wrong. The old one was tight/snug before I removed it. What am I missing? What am I doing wrong.

    I had the similar issue and I just bent the spring to make it more curve so it hold the bulb in place better.
