Didi you try switching the light bulbs from the aftermarket to the OEM one and see if he OEM will clip onto the housing . . . .

I just installed my clears for my facelift. And I had the same problem. I eventually figured out that you have to break or shave it with a dremel tool.
That's supposing that it will be the same with your model year. That's why I suggest that you look at the one you took out and see what the difference is :thumbup:

It is the same problem I had. If you take a closer look, you will se that your bulb housings latch onto lenses using black little square catches. The holes to accept this latches are either too high down so you can file them on the top ledge or file the gray pins down so your bulb housings will go down more and latch.
