Some have taken electrical tape and wound it around the base of the LED and the connector to hold it in. Road vibration is not an issue, but the bulb can be knocked out of the connector when it is removed if you are not careful. And if the bulb falls into the headlight assembly, then say good-bye to it.
I'm glad this is noticed by others too, what I have done is dab the socket where it meets the plastic sleeve on the LED with some super glue, and then reinforced it with electrical tape. It's pretty snug now. I'm mainly worried about road vibration as I take extra care installing and removing the bulbs.
However my ordeal apparently isn't over! When I was installing the high beam bulb I discovered that one of the adapter cable (from bulb to the OEM harness) is the incorrect one! The two poles are two far apart so it can't be plugged into the harness. I'm gonna have to contact the eBay seller see if he can send me another one.
Also, I think my dome light bulb is way too dim, it's "3022-NW4: Natural White" from superbrightleds.com. Is there another one that you recommend that's significantly brighter? The one I got also seem to concentrate the light on a dot on the lens, I'd prefer one that's more evenly distributed.
