    Looking to get some clips as my truck came with the filler plates flopping around but no clips.

    Looking at this diagram it looks likes its one clip per headlight/filler plate, however as we know each headlight has two rectangular holes, one wider then the other. Is it one clip or two per headlight filler. Clips are 5 bucks a piece so little grumpy about that but no big deal. Part number 8 on the diagram, or Toyota part number: 53245-04010.

    It's one clip per filler, so two total for the truck. One end direct bolts and the other snaps into the clip.

    Fantastic, see mine were bolted in only so they were floppy.

    That sucks. Get the clip and solve that issue now. I think I found them for a different member for ~$3 from Camelback Toyota.

    Just bought one myself. 8 bucks at the local dealer. I wasn't happy, but it's all I needed at the time.

    Yeah, Took fillers off a few years ago, but just got a whole new front end so might as well put them back on properly.
