Sorry to hear that. Correct me if I misunderstand anything, so you are saying that when you take off the wheel, there is already a broken angel eye bulb in the socket? You bought the car with broken angel eye? I feel bad for your situation, maybe you can try using tape to hold the bulb in there? Hope to see pics soon.
