Headlight vibration

Hi everyone, I have a slight vibration on my pilot headlight (bixenon), I have already secured bolts and the lower part of the casing because it was a little bit loose.

I've noticed that when I smash the headlight softly with my fist, the projector is somehow loose. When I drive this vibration is very evident on the road.

Is there any adjustment that can be done inside of the casing for the projector? I don't want to mess something with the autoleveling.

Any help would be appreciated.

I misunderstood - I thought the light bulb was loose - but you are saying that the projector is loose. - I suggest taking it apart - find the DIY for angel eyes and use that info to take the light apart so you can remove the chrome shroud and check for something loose.
