    Toyota wants like 1.50 each(for the little ones that have the center pop out) and 2.50 each(for the white ones) for the connectors that attach the panels to the doors.


    Plus they don't have them in stock so they want to charge 11 bucks for shipping to the local stealership.


    There has got to be a generic distributor that is out there.

    2) Go to another Toyota or Lexus Dealer

    I have a Toyota dealer and a Lexus dealer right next to one another in my area. I walked right over to Lexus and it was almost a dollar cheaper. No idea why.

    Some clips are manufacturer specific and the local parts stores don't carry them. I had to get some clips for the center console on my '08 Accord. The clip didn't cost that much but it was the shipping that was the killer. I could get them online but it was the same thing with the shipping.

    I got some without the center punch from Adavanced Auto Parts for $0.89 for a pack of two. They are close enough for me.

    Pep Boyz should/might have them too. They come in packs, I think 5 in a pack not sure. I bought some one time for my Blazer door panels from Pep, apparently if I would have gone to some off place, they would have charge WAY too much.

    I have never been able to find any toyota specific clips from any of the local auto parts stores...advance auto parts, autozone, oreilly, pepboys. I think you will have to get them from the dealer.

    The auto parts stores may have some that are similar..however I have never had much luck with them since it needs to be a tight fit.
