eyelet ring


Explanation:
My dictionary does not show this term, but I believe these items are called "eyelet rings." I found many references to them on the Net, but none was associated with headlight installation. I still think eyelet ring (sometimes with a hyphen) is the right term.

The first link gives reference to the translation.
The second link shows "grommet" used in such a context.
This is the translation that we have used in many similar texts.
Good luck.
