Without a picture of what you have hard to let you know how to fix it.
Is this a vinyl siding siding block?
Lowes and Home Depot have simple to install backing plates that set right over what you most likly have now for larger lights like that.
Just remove the trim ring and the new cover slips right in the same place.
