I installed new front parking lights without incident until I went to reassemble the second headlight assembly and the little spring that holds the bucket came off. Seems like such a simple thing, but I cannot figure out how to put things right. The spring may be small but it is a tough little @#$ that doesn't want to stretch so I can put it back on. As always, any inputs are appreciated.

Here is the worst picture in the world of how it should be on there, sorry its all I have. When looking at the bucket the spring comes from the back side to loop around. I only have one with the spring. My other bucket rusted through and that tiny piece of metal that the spring goes over broke free. I haven't noticed any poor performance out of the broken one

I made a t-handle out of 1/8" welding rod with a hook on the end of it. It takes a pretty hefty pull to stretch that spring up and around the bucket.
