Headlight mounts technical term?

Evening guys (and gals). I'm having a bit of trouble finding the mount that the headlights slide in to. The metal bar that is used to lock in the headlight in place is stripped on my 2000 Boxster. Any clue what that thing is called? I'm hoping to be able to replace just that metal bar, but can deal with replacing the entire mount if necessary. Thanks in advance.

Try a salvage yard with porsches. Should be the same for 911's and boxsters. (at least till 02 on the 911)

Item #9 is the new mountain plate you are looking at replacing. The locking bow isn't available to sell separately; at least from Pelican

Sorry for the late response. Thanks much guys. I had no clue what the name of that thing was. I'll go ahead and get one ordered!
