Taking third eye apart b/c of rattle

Alright so finally got to taking apart the third eye, after finding out from Honda that it costs like 120 or 180 for a new one!
Every time i revved my bike ( 2007 Honda cbr600rr ) to more than 3k maybe to 6k revs, the third eye running light piece would buzz rattle vibrate whatever you wanna call it.
It was unbearable, and if i would just push with my finger on it then rev the bike the sound would stop.
So these are just some pictures to help out future people having the same problem.
Im not done yet still in the process of siliconeing the housing back to together.


So first you have to take off the windshield and mirrors, then the right side fairings





Today i took a heat gun to it, took about 10 min. was kinda difficult for me and my dad lol using small ass flat screw drivers to pop it open.
The screw in there wasn't lose but the reflector/lens (not housing) that's attached to the circuit board was hitting up against the sides of were its positioned.
Dont know if you can see in the pics but it was grinding some of the white off the circuit board as evidence






So me and my dad siliconed the reflector/lens and then put the circuit board back on it to stop any vibrating their(very minor but wanted to make sure)
We then siliconed the back of the housing were the white marks and debris was, then put the circuit board and reflector back in place with the screw. now letting it dry over night, then will silicone the front housing back on.



oh and when i first unscrewed the screw that hold the circuit board and lens in there
i screw it back on and the sound stopped! but i didnt want tot take any chances so im still siliconing the crap out of everything

remove the third eye, go for a ride and see if the sound is there.

Is the buzzing from the mounting of the 3rd eye to the front fairing rather than the 3rd eye itself? If you could press on the 3rd eye and make the buzzing stop, I would have loked at the two screws that hold it to the fairing first. Maybe put some foam or a dab of RTV or something between where the 3rd eye sits in the fairing.
