Throttle coming off. Is this something i can fix?

If i pull on the end of the throttle is moves to the right. It doesn't quite come off maybe because of the cable it is attached to. The electrical side of things is working but is there a screw missing and thats why it is loose? The pictures attached might tell the story? I just got the bike back today from the store to get the back wheel puncture fixed and maybe they accidentally left the screw out? I have been there too often lately and thought i would ask before i go down there again. Geez its all too much. Just got this bike upgraded from a Lead acid battery and motor replacement and the whole bike needed so much retro fitting as the motor was not the right size....sorry i don't know how to explain it properly. Thats just the way i am interpreting things. If it s a matter of a simple little screw i might have one in the toolbox to do the trick. I am charging the bike right now so can't try anything yet.

Wont hurt to try a screw. Some of the screws that go on the twist shifters might also work. If you don't have some screws or and old bike for parts, you may want to go back to the bike shop and they should have one.

If it's something to do with the electrical connections, you can order a cheap throttle from China (ebay). I think I got one was that was under $10.
