Recently I lost one of my side marker lenses; it just fell off somewhere while going down the road. I bought another one from a member here and I don't want it to fall off again of course. Were they originally just snapped in or was adhesive used too? On the mounting bezel for the lens that I lost, there's some, what looks to be, black adhesive residue...



... but I don't know if that's original or if some previous owner put some adhesive in there to attach a lens that maybe had broken clips.

If adhesive is supposed to be used, what kind?

I put a piece of trim tape between the reflector and the metal housing.

Thanks. Do you know if they had double-sided tape or adhesive originally, or were they just snapped in? I guess some tape would be good insurance either way.

The cars I have worked on ..i recall seeing a black rectangle of vinyl or rubber in there. But I don't know if it was dried out double stick tape, or some sort of anti-rattle thing.
