    The lights will pivot inside, basically pull the inside of the lights up so the adjuster clip is closer to the outer casing of the light, that way you can clip it in! And cutting the wing is just trial and error. Cut little bits and refit the lights to see how they look should look like this:

    image.jpgimage.jpgThis is what it looks like from the front

    image.jpgimage.jpgThis is the view of each wing, it seems to be catching somewhere, I've cut a fair wedge out, you can see where it's not sitting properly at the wing.

    You need to completely cut the metal bit off completely mate the adaptor loom is easy to make tbh and you may find you need to tap the bottom of the wing down a bit hope this helps ... If you lived closer I'd do it for ya lol

    Seeing as it wasn't raining this morning I set about seeing if could do anything with the lights, I got them to fit a lot better, had to trim a little here and there and they went back in much better and sit better also so happy now, def make the car look newer
