I need to air seal non-ic recessed 3" cans, but I can not get into the area installed to seal. Ideas?

I installed 12 - 3" non-ic recessed cans in my family room of my cape cod home. I went with the smallest can possible for the look I wanted, and they did not have any IC cans in that size. Now I am noticing a lot of air leaks coming from the cans. I can not get to the back of the cans to seal them - it is a finished room above the cans. The can's are wiggled, so I glued the lips of the can's in, and can't be removed. What are my options?
