Funny until it was not.
I am going to try cutting the right size rubber hose and using it to put pressure between the grill and the brackets.
You are right about stiff suspension. I tell people a mini cooper is a street legal go cart.

You have the right idea - bracing the bracket against another surface to limit its movement is the best solution...

Not too many classic Mini's for sale here in Indiana. Most bring the price of a new house.

Well your not really supposed to use them! Your idea is probably a good one, I have a 65 Mustang with the factory driving lights, and they vibrate on bumps some as well. I would assume the stiffer the suspension, the worse it gets.

I installed the factory driving lights. The lights seem to vibrate when driving. It is as if the brackets are not strong enough. Have any of you had this? Did you find a solution?
I am thinking of wedging something between the grille and light brackets.
Thanks,
