Default 03 Ep3 bumper lights??

The clips that hold my front bumper marker lights are all broken and they won't stay in place. Anyone know a source to order replacements? I've checked ebay and amazon, and found a clear set, but they are no longer available.

Thanks for the reply. They want $49.99 and $67 shipping to me. Uhhhh whoa! I'm in Canada, so looks like I'm siliconing the old broken one back in place

Don't silicone... It'll be messy and semi-permanent. I use gorilla tape on the back of mine for 100k miles now with no issues, and I can take them back out if I ever need to.

-insert light
-rip 5" strip of gorilla tape
-slap it in there on the inside of the bumper
-repeat as needed

I just pulled my passenger turn signal out for paint, and it was held in by this method. Legitimately difficult to remove it, no way it would have ever fallen out. Tape was still sticky after 2 years.

No pictures, cause you literally can not see it. It's behind the bumper, nobody will ever know.

clever! thanks man.

yeah these things will break off easily as they get brittle..its honestly probably better to just remove the bumper entirely if you need to take these things off lol
