    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.

    look on ebay. i was missing one and that where i got mine. i had to paint the one i got. just make sure you get the right year model. there are special clips for it to and the dealer was the only place i could find them.

    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.
