Help with the start stop switch on a CB919

I recently bought a CB919. It runs great. However, the headlight won't come on high or low. I thought it might be the start stop switch (right switch pack) and opened it to try and and access condition.

Now i can not get the switch case closed again. It is as if there is something causing pressure on one end or the other preventing it from closing? Any ideas what i could have done wrong? I think the switch looks like it is still connected in switch and am also looking for other ideas? I also tried switching the 2 screws one is longer than the other to no avail.

I checked the maintenance manual but there are no explanations of how to remove or install this part???

Is there a relay / fuse? I have already replaced the bulb so that isn't it?

Thanks in advance.

pic 2 here you can see the case split. tightening the screws causes a larger split?

pic 1 connections looked good?

There is a nub on the switch housing that fits into a hole on the handlebar. Fiddle with it and you will get it (TWSS).

SO quick question the "nub" is on the switch and it fits into a hole on the bars that centers the switch in the right place?

Yep that's right. It keeps the controls from rotating.

What mm said. you also have to be careful with the threads on the screw for the bottom. It'll catch the plastic but won't necessarily grab the threads if the screw is at an angle.
