Broken headlight tabs, possible help?

Was pricing out a set of 2012 factory housings for another member and happened across this when looking up the price for '05-11 housings (BTW: $190).

Interesting... seen a few people post about broken mounting tabs, and it looks like these are some kind of repair part for those.
Just under $12 each... might be worth a shot to save a broken $200 housing!

or the little tabs that hold the lens to the rear of the housing?

jb weld can fix almost anything plastic i would look into that as a possible fix.
Dunno... the drawing appears to be the mounting tabs.

Item #6, 7, and 8

There is a section in the repair manual showing how to attach the new mounting tabs.

Sorry for the bump, but it's useful information for anyone else that comes across this thread.
