    I thought I'd get ripped off a lot less than this - like $1-$1.50 ripped off.

    Take these part numbers and don't repeat my mistake.

    The black push pin goes up into the dash over the instrument panel (probably lots of other places too)

    The white clip goes on the black panel that covers the back of the side view mirror on the inside of the door.

    Ouch! Cant wait to break some with my next project... :( I was wondering, does anyone know if the black ones above are the same as those that hold the wheel well surround flaps on? And whats the easiest way to remove them intact so they can be reused? Im guessing pushing the point in back to unlock it?

    I don't know if they are the same, but you remove these by pushing the center pin in and then prying the whole thing up from under the circular head (pin should stay inside the center hole)

    agreed.

    have a yaris, bumper has to come off often, to do any real work like change light bulbs....

    so, those little pop clips are everywhere, and of course, you need a ton of them since they just
    want to break when reused

    got a big bag of 50 for 4 dollars off aliexpress. same damn clip, same plastic, same thing
    except a little untrimmed mold flash which you might need to poke a bit off. but a bag
    of 50 would be over 80 bucks at dealer

    Goddam OP that’s very expensive for only 2 plastic fasteners. Thanks for the the part numbers, will check out Amazon.

    Thanks for posting this and for taking the hit for the rest of us.
    I'm sure Amazon has Chinese copies of these that will work for much less.

    I didn't really *need* them. Everything was fine without them - nothing sagging or rattling.

    But...now you have them. Throw them in the glove compartment. When it pops in the middle of nowhere, the 4 bucks won't matter much.

    Oop. My bad ...guess it was 6 bucks....

    Thank you for your reply, I am too sick right now and will keep it short. I have to play with that later when I’m over this flu thing I got. Cheers
