Xenon headlights brackets

Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Hello, I have a question for you guys. I removed the xenon headlights on my e92 a couple months ago to have OSS installed their custom angel eyes. They did a great job and of course they’re the best looking angels I’ve ever seen. However, when I removed the headlights I really didn’t pay attention to where all the screws and some external parts (brackets) location that are connected to the headlights. Now, for those who removed their headlights before, where does those little brackets connect to? They almost look like an “L” shape and is connected from the chassis (I think) to the headlights. I could not find an installation guide for the e92 xenon headlights and now I have two brackets that I don’t know where they should be connected to. My headlights is currently installed without them (I don’t remember where they were connected to when I first removed them) and I think it’s causing me some minor problem (half-assed it). I will post some pictures of the brackets after work if it helps. I thought it was the D1S bulb on the driver side that was loose at first but after checking it again, the bulb is in place and locked. Therefore, I don’t think it’s the bulbs but the 2 brackets. The problem I’m having right now is…

1. My driver side headlight is brighter than the passenger side. When driving behind a car with my xenon on, I can see the driver side headlight giving out more light output. I thought it was the alignment at first but after reading up some posts, I’m sure the xenon headlights have auto-alignment. Therefore, those 2 brackets must be for keeping the headlights in place while the auto-alignment does it thing.
2. My headlights are a little loose and kind of wobbly (up and down motion). The headlights will move a little if you place your hand on it and push.

If you know where they are connected to please let me know or any help/tips/pictures/posts would greatly be appreciated. Thank you!!
