Default Headlight **** fell off

My sister is driving the 92 and she just called and said the headlight **** fell off her car. Of coarse it has manual headlights too Is the headlight **** like any radio **** where you can just push it back on? She also said some metal piece came off with it to.

Can I just push it back on? If not, what would be the best way to fix it? Glue it or replace the whole thing? And if I do replace it how do I loosen those screws above the instrument cluster, they seem to be some odd shape

there is a metal tab that needs to be pushed in to release the headlight ****...it sounds as the metal piece has broken, thus allowing the **** to fall off the shaft

you should be able to just push on the **** on and it should hold there. If not the metal tab has broken

See the metal tab in Bob'* pic? If it'* still there..pull it up a little, this way it holds when you put it back on.
