Has anyone ever had a problem with this part? I tried to get my headlight rim on, and it just wouldn't twist all the way on. Finally, I figured out that reflector spring must be the problem, and got another, and put it on, and the rim screwed on fine. Isn't it great to have spare parts laying around?

Larry, I have found that the original ones are better than the reproductions. The repros I have seen (and tried to use) are too thick and too stiff.

Does that spring go in behind the reflector, or where?

Yes, the spring goes behind the reflector.

I have a feeling that the joint on the spring may have been the problem. Of course originals work better, but in this case, it didn't. The one I replaced it with is also an original.
