Glee vibrating front panel

My glee had its headlights and screen changed a few weeks back (bloody van driver). Now at low revs something in front rattles. When I press the spedo with my hand while riding the noise stops, so obvious somethig is loose. Took to dealer, he checked, reopened, and tightened everything ( I was not present). But the rattle ia there. Any tips? Or anyone knows how to open the whole thing off?

Missing push fasteners? Alignment is key.

Fasteners are in place. Dealer says he has opened and tightened everything again. Its obvious something is not set in place. I think I need to do it myself so any tips on opening the panel would be great!

There are hidden fasteners. Best to get the manual I think.

I recently did some work on my L4 and pulled the cowling to get access. I noticed that there are four metal tabs on the radiator that insert into a mate on the black portion of the side cowling (#7 and #8 on the side cowling fiche fig.53). There are suppose to be rubber bumpers on these tabs but all of mine had fallen off (#6 on the radiator parts fiche fig.19). Luckily I found them in a cavity below inside the cowling. I put them back on but I attached them with some black gasket sealant to hold them in place. Maybe yours are MIA and causing vibration of the front panel.
