Default Headlight vibration

So... Iíve noticed sometimes that the left headlight ęvibratesĽ a bit when I park against a wall. Itís not notisable when i drive, only when I pull up to stop and the car is still in gear.

I was changing some control arms today so I opened the headlight and it looks like the whole item with lens, bulb and cornering light reflector is a bit loose. It only moves sideways.

Added a video for explanation. Anybody had this before ?

I have this slightly also with the HID lights, the whole bulb/ballast/reflector assembly wiggles very slightly at certain low rpm.

as you say you only notice it when parked against a wall or behind somebody in slow traffic, still a bit annoying though
