Changing a headlight bulb

Hey everybody, at the risk of sounding stupid I have a question. After 3 hours, 4 you tube videos (that never mentioned it) and a whole lotta aggravation I was able to change the bulb on my 2009 Ram. After taking everything apart I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get the housing to come out. When I did I realized I broke a white plastic clip behind the housing. I was able to get it all back together and it seems to be secure. My question is how necessary is that plastic clip?

That's what was holding the housing in place lol! It keeps the housing backside from moving side to side. Now it may stay out of everything else is good to go but that's the one clip a lot of people miss when taking housings out.

Thanks buddy! As long as you think it's ok without, that's good enough for me. Now I feel better.

I really appreciate everybody on here, it's good to know such a great group of people so willing to help. I'm not used to that. You all really are awesome.
