Silicone will do wonders! Just make sure you clean it well, and use clear bathtub silicone that resists water, drys very quick and cleans up easy! This might be even better then the clip, as it will make a tight seal and not eat your paint over time...

Maybe i got this wrong, but isnt he asking about side markers, not signals!?
Side markers, as in on the side of the fender...nothing to do with the headlight.

Related question: I got the slightly larger pre96 side markers that apparently screw in. The newer ones won't work? Need new fenders?
