Solar Panel Bracket kinda loose

Looking at the roof, I noticed that the flimsy brackets holding the 190W solar panel have shaken loose and the black tar stuff is splitting and does not cover them anymore.

They have always been a bit shaky, but now they're at a new level of shaky.

Not too concerned it will fly off, but I don't like the holes in the roof as any water will surely find its way in there.

So... is this normal? I assume not. Happened to anyone? Ideas how to address this (low cost, without doing a completely new installation)? And yes, I like having a solar panel.
