  1. Interior clips

    My inept local dealer who sold me my TC did the recall install of the side door latches. They annoyingly left one of the black plastic trim clips out of my MDF sliding door panel. I'm trying NOT to support this dealer as they have proven to be very inept, and don't really want to go back there, so I thought, "how hard could it be to find some trim clip replacements?" As it turns out - harder than you might think! Tried without success to register at fordparts.com, whose web site seems to be only partly functional. Then just made some online searches. The only clips I could turn up that looked very much like the Ford originals, could be bought from one of the local big-box auto parts dealers for.....$12.....That's twelve dollars EACH! Yes, for ONE fastener. There's an infinite assortment of clips available out there, but no way of telling if there is a reasonably-priced replacement that actually fits the TC's panels. Some of you may have already discovered that those MDF panels can be an annoying source of vibration if not securely fastened. I want fasteners in EVERY hole! Anyone found a replacement clip type and source for substitutes that work?
