Bulb retainers

What exactly has to be done to the bulb retainers to get these to fit. It just a says minor cutting of retainer. Kind of vague.

Accepted Answer
Depending on what brand headlight you have, the plastic black ring used to hold the bulb in place will vary in thickness from brand to brand. Some brands are too thick, and you have to take and cut roughly 1/4 to 1/2 an inch off the plastic retainer so that the bowl of the LED will clear. This had to be done on one of our employees cars, and he just used a hacksaw and cut about 1/2 inch off the ring. After he did that, they went right in.
