Right tail light housing loose!!! Please help!!!

I have had this issue for a while now, maybe forever, I may have just noticed it. The issue is the the right side tail light housing itself is loose when mounted to the vehicle, when looking at it you can tell it doesn't match up perfectly with the body but, if you push on it, it will go where it's supposed to. When you push on the housing you can push the plastic trim push pins into the correct position but, as soon as you take pressure of the housing it goes right back to where it was before!! I think the issue might just be that I need need plastic trim push pins, is this possible? Has anyone ever had this issue with one or both of their tail light housings?

yes 2 new push pins should do it.

you can also check the plastic that the BALLS fit into on the other side.

Trying to figure out where the screws are, the assembly comes off after just taking those plastic pins out
