I can weigh in on this. My headlight too was loose after my bike cartwheeled - I got a new unit on Black Friday at a awesome discounted price of $1300... *barf*
Anyway, if you unplug the heat sink or whatever the heavy metal part underneath the headlight unit - and take off the cover on the back of the unit, you may be able to reach in and manipulate the internals where you could epoxy the headlight to something inside, or use a popsicle stick to epoxy to the lens and the shell, then button it back up. Who knows where it will be pointing though... I think aiming the light will be the toughest part of the job. Insurance paid for a new one, so I went that route, but I wouldn't have been opposed to trying something. Couldn't make it any worse!
For kicks, I tried to pry the lens away from the back shell. No go. It must be bonded with something really strong. I literally had the garbage man take it away yesterday morning, so my info is as recent as Tuesday Night.
Good luck -it's a lot of cash to cough up! My light was cracked and would have suffered water damage etc anyway, so I didn't really need to keep a non-serviceable unit.
