That type of clip on a Cayenne - usually the metal part of it is mounted into the recess it goes into - then the plastic stab is pushed into it. Remove the metal bits - put them up in the mount where they belong - and then push the light assembly up as far as it goes.

 

BTW - what camera setup did you use?  And I'd be interested in seeing a video from it to see what the quality is..

My recollection on this from when I hardwired my V1 was that the clips deformed when pulling down the assembly. It was necessary to bend them into the correct shape again for them to provide sufficient holding force.

 

I found this by carefully examining how they latched in and it was clear that the shape was incorrect when pushing them back up. Look closely at the clip and what it latches onto and you should see what I'm talking about.

Be careful, when I pulled mine to wire the dash cam it took a lot of force because the springs were deformed. When the light came out the springs cut a pretty deep gash into my palm.
