For each of my headlights, the three little clips that keep them snug keep bending and eventually allows the lamp to get loose.

Is there an alternative way to keep the lamp tight? Or is there something i can replace those clips with?

Since September, i've removed and unbent those clips to tighten up the lamps three times already.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I used a piece of a little thicker aluminum and made a small piece with a hole in it. That screws to the back of that flimsy clip (using the same screw through both) so the clip doesn't bend back. I wish I had a picture but I hope this helps.

Do a search. This has been covered several times already.

I just backed them up with washers. Used small bolts and nuts.

Make your own clips out of thicker material. Thats what I did and its working.

I opted for silicone caulking around the light from behind. Very fast and secure.

Rope caulk works as well as silicone and is easier to work with if you have to change lights.
