Default Headlights

Hey guys, so the Ranger I got was in accident before I bought it, so the who'd passenger side was redone. Anyways the headlight on the passenger side is really loose and I'm pretty certain is because of a plastic piece I'm missing. Does anyone know what this is called? First pic is the headlight that fits and the second one is the headlight that's loose.

Yes I think they are those brackets. Do you happen to know the exact name of them? I know the passenger side doesn't have a bracket and it's really loose. Either that or other pieces are missing. Keep in mind the whole passenger was totaled.

Alright well thank you. Think I might just go to a junk yard or pull a part and take it out of an old ranger. Thank you for your help!

According to the OWNERS MANUAL, they're called "retaining pins". And yes, the ones shown will work.
They aren't plastic, they're stamped steel.

That makes more sense than what the owners manual called them.
