They are not a precise fit into those sockets. Lift it out of there, and you will see slots or tabs, if I recall. Insert it into the socket and turn it one way or another to lock it into place. Or, it may just pop into place with tabs on the sides.

I got a '91 Spider I bought new... and I still love driving it.
