      Arrgghhh... those little kick panel clips got lost

      I just went and replaced the cabin filter for the first time today, and when popping off the kick panel that conceals access to it two of the three little white clips that hold it on popped off and disappeared somewhere inside the center console area. I looked for twenty minutes but couldn't retrieve them. Now my kick panel is only being held on by one last clip. Does anybody know what the part number is to order them? I looked online but couldn't see them listed separately. @DodgeCACares ? @AllMoparParts.com ?

      Delta Dart,

      The Parts dept. at your local Dodge dealer will certainly be able to get you the part info. and place an order for you.
      Those little clips can be tricky on removal!

      Just to confirm you are looking for the clips on the console closeout panel shown within this post https://www.dodge-dart.org/forum/dodg...tml#post225969

      After contacting Mopar specifying we are told the clips are not serviced separately from the panel.

      I already talked to the parts department at my closest dealer, and he couldn't find the clips listed separately. Does this mean I need to buy a whole new panel just because a couple of .75 cent plastic clips departed for regions unknown???

      Check at your local auto parts store. I know AutoZone has a good interior trim accessories section. They have a lot of clips and screws available. Maybe something will work.

      Most likely yes unless you can match up one of the others at an autoparts store as Delta Dart mentioned

      This is interesting, let me know what you find out from an auto parts store. I am also missing one and the kick plate is hanging a little lower than normal and it's driving me nuts.

      I looked at a NAPA store this morning, they had a lot of small clips and such but nothing like what I'm missing. The next place for me to try is a local Wesco Auto Paints store.

      It's hard to believe Mopar doesn't list these things separately, as I'm sure I'm not the only one who lost these clips. They popped off and jumped deep in into the center console the moment I pulled the kick panel off.

      NAPA doesn't have them.
      Autozone doesn't have them.
      O'Reillys Auto Parts doesn't have them.
      Wesco Auto Paint Supply doesn't have them.

      I'm running out of options here. Does anybody know of a decent website that specializes in automotive fasteners or am I going to have to buy a half-dozen kick panels just to have enough clips to last me? Knowing my luck they'd probably all be missing the clips anyway.

      Maybe you can talk a service manager or whoever at a dealer to take some from one of their cars, or just trade kick plates with one

      In all seriousness, have you thought about junk yards? Not sure if they keep the little stuff around.
