I am getting ready to install relays for my front headlights, and I'm replacing the outer two lamps right now because they both went bad. I have been fighting with the stupid spring system that fastens the bulb assembly. Is the spring for the inner trim, the bucket, or both? Since the inner trim has the tab with the hole I figure it's at least for that. Does the front end of the spring curve upward or downwards? Mine was facing downward when I took the old lamps out. What is the darn secret with these things? I can't believe how difficult it is to assemble everything and I'm scared to death I will break the original inner trim or the new lamps. To be clear the old bulbs fight just as much, and from comparison I'm sure the bulbs aren't the issue. Why was such a thick spring used? Even with pliers and no bulb/bucket in the way I can barely stretch the spring at all. Seems like a softer one would work just as well right?
