    I think the lenses go into the bumper from behind. Maybe I am wrong.

    i tried that but the signal light is just to big to fit in there. the slot is 1 3/4'' and the signal light is like 2'' something. then the bumper piece goes back to the screw so even if i tried to shove it in it wont work. i can cut it off but then i wont have anything to screw the signal light in.

    These are my turnning lights and you can see that part of the lights goes behind the bumper and you install them from inside or behind the Bumper.
    Hope this can help you.
