SF Angel Eye Install Help

I cannot get the LED angel eye bulbs to lock in place for the life of me. The space constraints are driving me crazy. Is there anyone in SF that could help with this?

Happy to pay you for your time.

FYI, it's these bulbs:

Alternatively, can anyone recommend a place to take these to get installed?

If e90 and e92 are the same way you might need to cut or break the tab near the bottom

I don't believe the e92/3 install involves removing the fender liner as the bulb is accessed from the engine bay, but folks please correct me if that's wrong. Either way, I appreciate the tips.

I used a pair of pliers to turn the bulb to get it locked in place. Works fine.

I tried that, and now the heat sink fins are all bent and the lights still aren't in.

I am in Crocker-Amazon, about 5 minutes from Daly City. Any chance you could give me a hand? Happy to throw you some bones for your time (or help you with something mechanical, which I'm much better at).

Jon2168 helped me with the install on Sunday and confirmed that something is wrong with the locking mechanism of these Angel Eye bulbs. Now, I have to go back to e92 lighting to get a replacement.
