Broken xenon lamp unit support bracket

The bracket that is used to support my LHS xenon lamp unit and adjust left/right aim of is broken, so the lamp is not adequately supported any more.

I've looked around for the replacement part, but according to RealOEM only a replacement headlight unit is available!

I've posted pictures of both sides to show what the working part should look like.

Has anyone come up with a workable fix?

I would expect that a replacement part would not have to be the same shape, but would only need to be fit (like a dowel) into the adjustment slider and be screwed into the lamp unit.

Probably best to search out a breakers and see if they would let you have just that part or the whole unit cheap I should think?

Yeah, I would hope so, but I haven't been able to find a specific part number for the missing bit. All the cheap units off eBay 'for spares or repair' may also have this part broken.

Do you know of any good MINI breakers in the London area to approach?
