    I’ve been trying to ID these part numbers for a few days with no luck. Scoured TW and Toyota online parts sites/diagrams with no success. Even my local dealership couldn’t figure it out. It is not the “Seal Hood to Radiator Support” (53381-04040). Any assistance IDing these would be appreciated!

    There is a rubber weather seal that clips onto the top of my 2nd Gen OEM grille insert. The seal has 11 small holes on the bottom where 11 small t-shaped retaining clips protrude. These clips align with 11 small holes on the top of the grille insert and clip the seal into place. Most of the retaining clips broke while trying to swap the rubber seal to a new OEM grille insert. I’m trying to ID part numbers for the rubber seal AND the little t-shaped clips, as I would like to replace both if possible.

    From what I’ve seen online, this seal may not be available as a standalone part and might only come pre-installed on the complete 2nd Gen grille and surround (53100-04481-B1). I hope that’s not the case, but if it is, maybe someone knows the p/n for the retaining clips. Photos below… TIA!

    The seal is part of the OEM grille and it cannot be ordered individually. The info for the clips is below.

    Thank you all for your prompt replies! This forum really is a wealth of knowledge. And there’s no way I’m going to be buying a whole new grill assembly just for that rubber seal!

    @wi_taco, thank you for the advice about the 3M tape. I’ll probably use this to fill in the gaps where my clips broke off.

    @STOCKTRD, I had written this p/n down as a possible winner but I second guessed it because mine look grey. I’m guessing mine are just discolored from the elements. I’ll see if I can buy a few of these to replace my broken ones. Ty!

    @Geeves77, thank you for your help. I think you meant to say “of the grill” but ironically “f the grill” is how I was feeling when I broke all those clips!
