Loose shifter cap(5 posts)

I have Shimano Ultegra STI shifters. As a result of a crash this past summer, the cap on the right shifter is now loose - it rattles constantly and when I pull the brake lever, it swings upside down. I thought I remembered a post from a few months ago on how to repair/tighten the cap, but I can't find it anywhere. Does anybody know how to tighten the cap or can point me in the right direction?

... that you stuff between the lever itself and the cap. Somebody sold me earlier this year a bike that had a shifter like that, I had nothing to complain about.
