    I'm looking to replace the trim piece beneath the driver's side headlight on my silver 02. I've attached a photo to show the missing piece.

    I've contacted a dealership, but I'd be fine with something used. I'd be grateful if anyone who can help or provide any information.

    Thanks so much.

    Yeah, it's not the end of the world, but I figured I'd try and find a replacement. Any idea what it's called, taco52? I'm perusing ebay now. If I find something I'll let you know.

    They're called headlight fillers or bumper fillers.

    They're $4 on rockauto.com

    There's only one clip... it's a big whose-your-daddy kind. If you are missing that then yes, it will not stay in.

    I think the clip is $7 from the dealership.
