Need to tighten Shimano Ultegra (Triple) front shifter on dropdown bar.

One of my shifters is a bit loose on the handlebar. Where is the screw to tighten it? What's the procedure for accessing it?
Its a new Ultegra FD shifter 3 speed.
Pic or link to instructions would be best. Thanks.

You lift the on outward part of the rubber hood (you see already a small groove) and insert a long Allan key (either 5 or 6mm, I forgot) and tighten.

Where I circled. Peel back the hood a bit and you'll see you can insert a 5mm allen key there. Tighten.
