If I make it nice the light doesn't work
You can move the bracket on where it mounts to adjust it a bit it’s a trial and error type of issue we run into this also when we replace the belzel for the headlamp you have to adjust it till you lack lock inn the headlamp assembly and if the rubber stays inn but a bit use a pocket screwdriver to peel back the rubber above the bumper . I hope this helps please don’t forget to provide feedback for the help thank you
