My car got smacked in a parking lot while I was in Salt Lake City last
January.   Broke the passenger side headlight lens, shifted the fender

The plastic structure on the inside of the bumper cover on the wing that
goes along the passenger fender that clips into the plastic bracket on that
fender has one of its two anchoring fingers cracked.  Not missing, but

the fender also is cracked, but that's easily replaced.  The thing on the
cover is riveted in place and there's no part number for it in the Family

Anyone know how I might fix that broken part on the cover?
