I used epoxy instead of superglue since superglue tends to smear all over the place and has stayed there...

That was the biggest reason I went to a billet headlight, although I did get the stock one repaired.

Thumbs up

Got to love that "How to" section. Silicone seals it.

My solution was .get a small small Allen key load the end of it with epoxy glue.and carefully manipulate it so the end was in the slot for the reflector and swipe it off in there .then got the wife with tiny 6 year old sized fingers ,to get the reflector back in where its.ment to be .then used the bendy end of a 5 mm Allen key, to get in there tight .job done
