Default Xenon D2R Retaining Ring Needed

Evening All,

The plastic tabs have broken off the retaining ring for the D2R bulb on the Drivers side on my S8.

A little annoying and it does not seem to be a spare part, before I work out a solution with glue does anyone have one available to buy or an old/ broken headlight with one I could buy off them as a complete unit?

Or if there is indeed a spare part number? ETKA did not help much on this and said no!

Its one of these:

Bixenon or Xenon Plus? I think they are different. I have many Xenon Plus's in bits.

Looking at my collection of headlights, those plastic bits don't exist in the ones conventionally known as bixenon (look like halogens), only the xenon plus (rectangular lenses in front of the lamp) so I'm assuming you mean the latter. If so, I have the bit you need, but we've missed the post today. I can get it to you for Tuesday?

You are spot on, it looks like this from the front:
