This is the headlight off my G80CS. Is there some sort of securing device missing, that would hold the socket tight in the headlight shell?

I'm pretty sure they were just a press fit, the similar one on my '61 T120R has a rubber boot over the female coupling and this perhaps was meant to keep the two parts together, dosn't work though so a cable tie was pressed i into service, kind regards

If you are talking about something to hold the socket in the shell, it is held in with 4 screws and nuts through a large thin metal ring with 4 holes that sits round the back of the socket inside the shell. See attached.

Thanks for that, I do not have the ring, will have to make one.
Thx, Max
