Replacing headlights

Ok so I just got my headlights in today. Got the left one on no problem, but I went to install the right one, and the turn signal cord/connecter snapped when I pulled it off the original headlights. Anyone know how I can fix this? I'm so pissed off right now

honestly just the pressure of the harness holds them...mines been broken for a year. use a piece of tape to just keep it in place if you're wanted to be extra careful

+1. I have a whole bunch of those clips that are broken on my truck. Everytime I take something apart it seems like I break one.

Tried to superglue it over night, and they snapped again. What type of tape did you guys use?

Your fine. Use electrical tape if you feel it is necessary. Those clips seem to always break b

Okay thanks. I noticed this morning that my right blinker blinks a lot faster than the left, but my right turn signal still doesn't work. Might take it by a local shop where I know the guys who work there. See if they can help me out

maybe it's not the harness but the flasher itself...you can buy one for like $10-12 so i'd just swap it and see if things go back to normal

A ford dealer can order the pigtail. Or a trip to salvage

I messed around with it for about an hour today after school, and it decided to snap back in place some how. It's fixed now, and everything works. Thanks for all the help guys!
