    Does anyone know how the retaining clip is held on?

    It looks as though it is spot welded on and mine has come off from two places so I'm now riding with electrical tape over the lens and fastened behind the headlight to hold it in place

    No it's not that. It doesnt look to be in that diagram.

    It's a thin stainless steel ring that sits on the lip of the glass and holds the glass to the main headlight.

    Chacal told me its tack welded on

    Something missing, headlight should not protrude that far out of the bezel.
    I’ll post a pic of all the parts that should be there.
