Front signal lamps falling off :(

The screws are fine and not stripped, but the screw holes that the screw grips onto to hold the lamps are stripped. Is there anything I can use to fill up the screw holes to get the screws to stay on? Otherwise, I am using a rolled up chunk of electrical tape tucked to the inner sides to prevent the lamp from budging out.

you can buy some new ones or maybe use some soft glue and put it in there then after it rubberizes screw in the screw. I have two orange turn signal housings for the 5th gen. if interested let me know.

There are some metal screw fasteners that look like a U. They should fit over the plastic where you screw in the turn signal lights. What the really do is give the screw something to grab on and will be there forever as long as you do not lose them.

Sorry Im not sure of the name or anything.......
