    I was sitting in the McDonalds drive thru tonight when I stupidly dropped my credit card down my window pane. I had to take the entire inside of the door off and go into the plastic and get the card out! And when I did I broke a piece on the truck! There is a small piece that is in the top right corner of the inside door panel. It snaps in and holds the leather piece to the rest of the door and the pannel. It is just a small little plastic piece(i can take pictures tomorrow) It is in the top right about one ince from the window seal...if anyone knows what I am talking about and how I can get a replacment piece...I would greatley appreciate it!!!!

    are you talking about the clips that hold that triangular piece above the window in the corner? I lost one of those as well, but I still had the other two and they still do a good of job of holding it on so I just forgot about it.

    Otherwise I think the dealer can get some for you.

    You really have to go easy when putting that panel on, or those plastic peices will be pushed through their own hole and into no mans land.

    hes got a 1st gen so im not sure if they are the same or not but they do sell stupid plastic pieces and they are wayyyyy over priced, i lost a few of the ones the griz was talking about but just moved them around and have a couple in each and they hold enough

    No...mine is right below where you are talking about! I am talking about the leather section that is about 3 inches wide and covers where the door lock is!! I have attached a picture with the section that I am talking about! In the picture though you can not c the screw I am needing but you get the idea of where its at!!

    Is there anywhere on the internet to get small parts like that so I do not have to deal with the dealership??

    Yea thats exactly what I am talking about Tacomaman! Only problem is that this christmas tree is exposed and is the color of the door panel so it blends in with the leather! ! So I have to get the matching color so it does not stick out like a sore thumb lol!

    The dealer should carry them. Get a couple extra for the future. Also, you shouldnt be able to see it when the door is closed, so if the color is off a bit, no one should notice. :)

    Yes, exactly what I am talking about! I punched that damn thing and had it pop out just to get the panel off! I am also having problems lining the panel back up! Do you know how to get it lined back up in the holes or do I have to wait till i get that piece back in??

    Should line up just fine, as long as your door panel is full engaged near the window....funny I broke mine too about 3 weeks ago, still dont have one yet...
