    I'd call them a headlight bulb retaining clip, and err, wouldnt it be easier to replace the entire headlight unit than that single clip, unless you can get one from a scrap yard.

    but to be honest I think they are a pain to get off and even worse to get back on
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    They arent that bad to remove and replace if you take them off in the right order. Its only the retaining clip thats broke on a single side after replacing the bulbs thats all.
