Headlight inner reflector loose?! that's a first

Noticed that the three legged cover is shaking inside the headlight assembly

Anyone knows if that can be fixed ??? a new complete assembly is very $$$$

thanks

some videos and picures

That's what I was thinking. From the video it looks like the bulb is moving. Then, with the pictures, there's no metal retainer.

Took it off to disassemble the bulb. It doesn't hold the reflector, only the bulb. Under close examination two (very) small plastic tabs have broken off.
I'll try to glue the reflector in place with some glue.
Fastoman and Devilsfan like this.

I took mine apart to epoxy the plastic end of the adjustment screw. It was giving the annoying buzzing sound for me. Used a heat gun to soften up the glue holding the lens together. I stumbled upon the loose part fitting LED bulbs.
