Door snap in plastic broken

I am sure this is a repeat thread, I searched through the googler, but to be honest I dont know what to call this particular item.

On the passenger side door of a 08 wrangler sahara, where the soft top snaps into the plastic of the frame. The frame side is completly broken off, it seems like the previous owner decided to leave it snapped in then yank on the soft top.

Anyone here know what I am getting at? Or how to fix? Not a big problem yet, down the road though could be a water/highway driving issue.

It's called a door surround. It will most likely need to be replaced.

Likely that Daggo pegged it, but can you put up a pic of the broken piece? That'll make it much easier to tell you what it's called.
