ghead The left side fog light does not stay in the bracket. It looks like the tabs on the light do not sit against anything on the bracket. The spring clip does work.

Anyway is it best to replace both lights with better ones or just try and replace the bracket or the "frame". I have looked at the parts available and see there are brackets and a "frame". With no pictures not sure which to get. Not sure what these are, need the expert help of this forum. To new to the car.

The first time I changed my foglight bulb I broke the clip on the frame. They don't sell the clip by itself so I had to buy the whole frame. I'm guessing you did the same. Take a look for a rotating piece on the frame and check if it's broken. If it is you'll need a new one. The foglight itself should be fine.
Can you post some pics so we can get a better look?

A small dab of clear silicon adhesive on the bottom of the light will hold it in there perfectly, and its invisible

The whole light comes out of the bracket it is not the glass part. I tried using my old stanby rtv silicone adhesive to "glue" it in and it holds some but feels like it to will not hold very long.

bitcore will become famous soon enough bitcore will become famous soon enough
New OEM brakets from the stealer are 45$... 45$ for a round 6" piece of plastic... 80$ for new fogs from the stealer...

Just grab some fresh ZKW's from umniza for 48$ each WITH a bracket..
driver side
passenger side

You may want to call and be sure that bracket is what you really need, I need to get a pair of these but don't quite have 90$ YET to get them.
