Remove and reseal before it falls out and breaks like so many others.

Yup, do a search mate, this is a well known and expensive problem. Yes, pull the lens off and remove all old sealer, reseal with a decent Window sealer.

just puled the headlight of bike, lens was stuck pretty good but managed to prize it of
the glue has weathered when taking it of the lens it just broke up brittle, some good ideas in that link you posted donsy maybe going to rough up the plastic channel on housing with sand paper emery cloth for something the glue can adhere to .
