I just noticed that the front headlight on the drivers side is loose. If I press down on either the upper or lower corner, it rocks.

I am mechanically inclined but I haven't worked on cars in 15+ years and let's just say they are built a little differently these days than when I worked on them.

How can I access the headlight to tighten whatever bolt must be loose or is this one of those times I need to go back to the dealer?

There is another thread on this - but simply remove the wheel liner, 2 bolts in the front and 2 bolts in the back. Get it where you want it and tighten it down.

removing wheel and wheel liner is the easiest way, but if you crank the wheel all the way and undo the front haf of the liner in a pinch, you may be able to reach. I did it that way at one point. Those bolts come loose easily unfortunately.

Check my thread. You will have great difficulty getting to the front bolts. Also mine are all tightened up but the headlights still move a little when you put pressure on them.
