Had my Dash and Dash Wiring Harness Replaced with new and found the Courtesy Lights tucked up under the dash. Have looked everywhere under there and do not see a bracket that they mount on. Please someone point me in the right direction. Thanks.

If they are like mine, the light sockets themselves have a small metal clip which just snaps onto the top of the kick panel.

Took a look at the kick panels and there is a wide slot in it but much too wide for the lightclip. Is there supposed to be a metal clip inside the slot? If you or anyone could send a picture or breakdown to show me where it goes I would be eternally greatful. This little dress up project is kicking my butt. Thanks.

If the light socket has a clip on it, have you tried clipping it to the bottom of the dash, just under the glovebox? I think that's where I've seen them before...
