Need help replacing springs on ceiling light

I have a ceiling light with a spring that is not clamping tight enough. I have replacement springs but can't figure out how they install so that they are tight!

Anybody out there willing to teach me? : )

Looks like after you connect the wires, those 'wing' springs should fold back against the body. Then, holding the springs against the light's body, insert the assembly into the panel opening until the springs are inside the opening. Then you can release the springs, push the assy. flush and they will spring back over the inside of the panel holding the light and bezel in the opening. On some lights, the body is installed this way and then the bezel is rotated on the body to secure. Can't really tell from the pics.

Edit: Must be getting late, after re-reading, the springs are probably mounted to the body by inserting into slots, screwed or welded. If tack welded, you might have to get a new assembly with them already installed. Sorry, that's all I have for you.

The factory sent me new springs. I tried for an hour to get them to work...I must be a bonehead! I called the factory and they assured me it is very difficult to reinstall them! If I can't get them in ill just buy new lights.
