I'm sorry as I seem to have forgotten where the SEARCH button is located, I'm sure this has been discussed before. I have new headlamp bezels and seals and am trying to understand how the seals join the bezels, I know they ultimately need to be trimmed to length. Info most appreciated!

The seals should have a split in them that fits over a ridge on the back side of the bezel...You might want to use some clear silicone adhesive to hold them in place...I placed the joint at the bottom.

Pops, thanks for the response, I did figure it out and yes I put the joint at the bottom as well. Bill Scott, on what page does one find the "Search Community" button? I'll keep looking, probably right in front of me.

I could not figure out how to keep them in place, so I did not install mine. That was 10 years ago

Well, like I said the "Search Community" was RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!! Thanks guys.
Topdog, after I determined how much to trim off the seal I fed it (the seal) into the groove in the bezel and yes it wanted to spring out. However after keeping the seal in the groove awhile it seemed to conform a bit and at some point the spring action seemed to keep it in place. I sprayed a little silicone on the small flap that rests on the beam retainer ring and all slid nicely into place.
