Take a good photo of the part, pull it into a photo editing program, annotate it appropriately, and then sent it to them via e-mail. That might help.

I ran across a February 1998 manual for the XL1 stock lens (manual is Canon part # DY8-1510-310-010). The component with the bayonet is called:

"Front glass ass'y"
part number: YG9-5738-000 000
and it appears to be held inplace by 4 small screws.

What make, model, material is it? Others might want to avoid it if it is a rign issue rather than a lens issue..

i hate to namedrop... but i went through some crazy stress over this little hunk of metal.. IMHO it would not be wise to purchase the Fotodiox Step down ring 72-58mm,72mm-58mm. I bought it off ebay for $5
