Anyone find this part from outside of the overpriced Ford parts bins yet? I was looking around, but it seems that just the Mach-E and the "fleetside" version of the F-150 use this particular panel retainer clip.

I'm thinking of using velcro tape instead.

Here is what the official cowl side panel retainer clip looks like (photo is from someone's post in another thread):

Here's the closest I've found on Amazon so far, but it definitely isn't the right shape:

Check with tascaparts.com to see what shipping those things would cost. Usually cheaper than Ford for OEM parts.

Probably easier to just use a hot glue gun

I bought (3) packs of 4 from them, they shipped me one pack of 4 and when I contacted them they told me it only sold in singles. So they charged me $6.60 for (4) which is 1 pack. Now they are refusing to ship out the 2 other packs of 4. Avoid tascaparts.com (Tasca Parts) at all cost!!!

That’s too bad. Fortunately there are other sources.

Pulled my trim panels off today to connect the battery tender, lost one of the expensive plastic clips then noticed that the dealer service must have broken the two clips that are attached to the top center panel when they reassembled after some updates (the ones that have a metal clip attached.) I suppose I should attempt to get the dealer to pay for a new one ($114) when I take it in for the HVBJB service, although it didn't appear to be too loose, and they will blame me for it I'm sure.
