The same thing happened to me, one popped out nicely which considering that I had no idea how they were held in there seemed lucky and the second one broke both tabs. I used gorilla glue on the broken tabs and let them sit overnight before snapping it back in and it seems to be holding well. I thought that if that didn't work I would use 3M two sided tape but the problem with that is that if I would ever want/need to take them out again it would be very difficult to get them off.

I had one temporarily held in with the 3m double sided tape. Wasn't that bad . Didn't have it on like that long though. So maybe that's why.

Best of luck OP getting her fixed.
