Any ideas on an easy fix?

Noticed this when I changed the old headlight assemblies. Anyone have any ideas other than a body shop. I changed the old worn ones and they had some rigged crap on there and it went unnoticed by me.

I can see that there is a problem.
Are the headlights not fitting correctly in the mount?
Or has the rubber moulding come loose?

Looks like It's just the rubber on it not sitting down where it should. I would Maybe try some adhesive or a couple small dabs of silicone. Silicone will stay flexible and come off when the times comes to remove it. Maybe a kitchen and bath silicone that is weather proof.

Hey Vinnie,

Great question!

I had this exact same problem on my previous 2004 GT before I switched over to the Raxiom Smoked Projector Headlights and the fix was fairly easy for me.

I simply used clear silicone to adhere it back in place and seal the headlight. You could not tell it was there and I had no issues until I upgraded!

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

-Will

i tried something, i think it was the clear silicone. didnt stay fixed. i probably didn't clean it enough first. but careful use of jb weld and i havent had a problem in over a year.
