I had the headlights off today to give them a mop, On removal I could hear something rattling about internally, turns out to be a bit white plastic, I assume this has something to do with beam angle etc, the small white plastic part is held in with a screw but I've not been able to source a replacement.

Has anyone come across this before or if it's possible to get parts for the headlights.

My driver side headlight is the same, the part is what hold the inner light set up to the black plastic housing, I've not come across a part number yet.

I unscrewed the pin connector and got the broken part out from there, just leaves enough room to get in with a torx bit

I've attached a picture of the part I was referring to.
