DTEC Angel eye install problem

I just got the dtec bulbs and for the life of me I can't get the passenger side in. The heatsink is preventing me from lining the tabs up with the slots. What am I doing wrong?

The bulbs seal in there really tightly, so that could just be it. Can you see the ballast actually contacting something, or it just feels tight?

Took a lot of elbow grease to actually turn and lock my LUX, which is a good thing. My guess is you just need to turn it with more force.

I finally got them. I was just pretty scared to break the housing.
