Default Headlight is trying to escape?

I found that the left headlight in my vert was waving at incoming traffic. Upon examining it, I saw one of its holders popped out:

Any way to persuade it to go back in? I try to press it but I do not know if I pressed too lightly or just not right.

Try pressing. If not, try slathering it in sticky goo and pressing

E-codes mount exceptionally better than us-spec lights. After installing e-codes I can barely look at my old lights.

Update: gooing it with lithium grease persuaded it to get back in. So, life is good for now.
