Running light is loose

I have a V Star 1300 (07) and it has the factory running lights installed. The right one has come loose and for the life of me I cannot figure out how you can get inside the shell to possibly tighten something up. I can not even see how you would open the darn thing up to replace the bulb.

Can anyone tell me how you get these things open or even if the light can be adjusted and tightened back down.

I cannot tell you how frustrating this is. It is like the headlight shell that won't come apart after you take the bolts out. Or how about the adjustment of the rear shock. Thank god someone posted how to do that or I would have been taking all kinds of things apart.

There should be a screw at the bottom of the light assy holding the front bezel to the bucket. I have oem driving lights on my 1100 and that's the way they are held. Once inside the bucket, just tighten the nut. Be carefull doing this as the adjustment of the light is also done there.
