Default What's it called?

A friend has a 2006 touring- silver. The "do-dad" that holds the fog light bulb is missing from her driver's side. The black beveled part that fits in the hole is also missing. What part names am I-is she- looking for to replace them? Right now, the fog light bulb is just sort of hanging in the hole. It still works, so the wiring is intact, but the whole "thing" the bulb seats in is missing.

I was going to say lamp socket, but since the light works, socket must be there - socket housing?
Very pecuiliar - I thought the "socket housing" surrounded the socket so I don't see how it could disappear....

yep, I'm confused, too. I don't know how she got the damage she has.

The black plastic(?) thing that goes around the lens is gone, the lens is gone, the thing that holds the bulb inside the lens is gone, but the bumper is intact and the actual wiring for the light and the bulb are ok.

I'm thinking it shouldn't be too hard to replace the lens parts and I think there are chrome parts that can replace the black part that's missing, so there should also be black ones somewhere, but I need a name to be able to search for them.

Isn't that part of the whole lamp housing?

Well, I finally found the chrome ones. Cruisermotorsports is calling them "fog light inserts" and they want $150 for them, for both sides, but they only sell them in pairs and only the chrome ones.

The actual lens housing part which would replace her bulb is another $115 per side.

I'm wondering about salvage yards, now. We have a lot of 'you-pull-it' places here that charge a lot less for those sorts of cosmetic things.

Thanks for helping me brainstorm, guys.
