I haven't done this mod on a ef, so i can't be 100% sure what i am saying is right, but try filling/sanding down the sides of the LED until it fits into the bulb holder

If they're 10mm they're too big. 8mm or 5mm are the go.

I got blue 5mm ones and they are hard to put in where as with old bulbs they slide straight in but the bulbs look the exact same size
