: 528XI 2008 Headlight Install

Looking for some help, just received my headlights back from Umnitza. Umnitza added Orion
V2 angel eyes and xenon lights. The driver side slide into place with no problem but I'm sure having issues getting the passenger side in. It does not want to slide into the carriage bracket and fall into place.

Any or all suggestions would be greatly appreciated, just want to drive my car.

I'm not sure if there is a step by step tutorial to this.. but in my limited experience, i found that making sure that the inner side (side closer to the kidney grills) is fitted into the frame first and then placing the left side corners in after helped me... It takes a bit of force to get the headlights back in. Good luck!
