GT Rear fog lights coming off !!!

One of the rear fog light cluster, that is the one fitted in the rear bumper by the exhaust box, is almost coming off. It looks like the support brackets fixings it is attached to have melted

Not sure how to re-secure the brackets ... so pasted some transparent silicone around the foglight cluster at the moment to hold it in place but fear it might be a temporary fix only ...

Any suggestions ?

I'ce the same problem with mine. On my one it looks like the plastic bit on the bumper that the bolts are attached to has broken off and the light is only attached at the other side. From what i've seem from looking at it there's no way to fix it properly short of putting a new bumper on.
Mine is currently help in place by the good old Duct Tape trick
A better long term solution is going to be some sort of industrial high strength glue/bondo/putty that will join the broken bits. (any suggestions for the best would be greatly appreciated)
Very bad design tbh
