2016 Altima SV drl LED replacement issue

So my Altima SV does not have the signature LED drl’s. I replaced my low beams, high beams, fogs and drl’s with plug and play LED’s, and they have all worked great. However, for some reason Nissan made the low/high beams and fogs H11, but the drl’s are H7/5202. I recently had to replace the drl’s because the first set I bought was subpar. When replacing them I ran into the same problem I had when putting the first set in. The connectors that hold the H7 in place have two small clips that snap into place, but they don’t seem to fit correctly into the light housing on the car. I had to pretty much force the first set i bought into the housing. The new set i bought gives me the same issue. The clips actually broke off completely on one of them. So has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing something wrong?

pictures would be nice

but what you're trying to do is make your DRL's brighter?

It looks like the 5202 Bulbs have clips attached to it.
And the H7s have this plug and turn functions to it.

And I can see where the clips are. And you're saying that the Clips from the LED Bulb broke off because you tried to force it in?
Maybe the bulb assembly was too long?
Or maybe you're trying to put in the wrong bulb into the wrong socket?
