Falling fog lights

Hi, I'm having problem snapping my fog lights back in the housing.
Nothing seems broken. Is there a trick to do it right or I'm missing something?
Thanks
Hoss

Hi hoss, are you putting in the housing first then the fog light should just clip in at an angle. There's a little swivel mount on the fog light itself that clips in first.

Thank you guys for responds.
It seems like both brackets are sort of worn out and don't hold the lights.
The aftermarket ones with glass lens on eBay are around $32. Delivered with brackets and everything. That should taker are of this problem. Relatively cheep.
Cheers
Hoss

Since your in Florida, i recommend checking out BimmerSpecialist.com. A much better option then Ebay in my opinion. I have bought hundreds of parts through them and no issues to date.

OEM Fog Light Support bracket - Part # 63 17 8 357 394 @ $31.99
Fog Light - Part # 63 17 8 357 389 Hella's are $79, and ZKW's are $83.

Based on your recommendation, i did buy some parts from them and I sure recommend them. But I ended up getting the fog lights on eBay.
Thanks for good recommendation.
