Puddle lights - upside down! HELP

hi guys

was wondering if you can help. i bought the genuine m performance puddle lights and fitted them (can only fit one way in door during to wiring)

63312414105

here comes the problem, when its fitted, the image projects the wrong way rounds.

The projectors can only go in one way (tried flipping round) and it does not really rotate! I have tried everything flipping it round, don't really rotate much. I can only insert it on way in and i have tried both combo (left and right projector on the door)

I have tried all the projector images and all combo and same result...

any help would be appreciated.

I fitted these to my new G31. I had the same problem. There is a combination which gives this.....
However, I can't remember what I did, maybe swapped LH/RH light units and possibly also swapped LH/RH lenses. Sorry I'm not much help, but there is a combination...

Hey bud. That looks good. I have tried all the combo. So frustrating. Is your puddle light the same part number as mine?

Any chance you can take a picture for of how it is installed if not too much trouble to pop off?

I am really at a loss..

Thanks mate! 👍🏽 That's really strange. : Why is left on drivers door? 🤷 I tried the left and right image but did not change the unit 🙈as I assumed right means drivers! Thanks again
