C Pillar "Vent" Trim Piece

16 posts in this topic

So a trim piece fell off my car in a very British Leyland fashion (though to be fair this was the first time in 36 years, which is much longer than BL could claim):

I have all the parts. The tidbit that failed the rest of the trim piece was a little plastic nut-thing that went at the bottom, here:

The piece looks like this:

Does anybody happen to have one of these? I can find the part number but all the parts sites I went to didn't have the piece itself.

 

Also, I'm missing this little piece on the other side (the left side):

which goes here, on the top of the trim piece (on the other side):

Does anyone happen to have these tiny parts... or at the least can point me to where I might find them?

Which piece are you talking about? If it's the plastic nut thing (whatchamacallit) then I think it'll work on the right side (it's just a holder for the screw, which I've got: I'd be shocked if it didn't work...). Did you mean the gutter-ette piece?

Ahhhh, ok then, the plastic nutsert. I thought you needed the actual trim piece. Yes, I have a couple lying around. I should be able to do something tomorrow.:thumbsup:

Excellent! ^_^ Yeah, I've got the trim piece and all associated bits (which I took off before they flew away on the freeway) except for the nutsert...

Do you have one of these by chance?

A "gutter-ette" which links the gutter to the gutter-bit of the trim piece. I have the one for the right side (as you see above) but the left side one is missing.

Found the trim clip.  I was positive I had some of the square plastic nutserts lying around - I can't find them. I have to make a trip to my favourite pick-a-part wrecker in the next week, so I'll definitely get you a couple then.:thumbsup:

Now young Doctor Robert, thank you for your extraordinary patience.  I am having a bad run with health at the moment!:blink:

I believe these are the little suckers you are after?!  They're tricky little buggers to get out!

Extraordinary patience is a skill of mine! XD Boasting aside, I've been pretty occupied with a vast bunch of stuff...

Yes, the clip on the left is what I need... but the plastic screw thing that I needed was this one:

Which goes where the red arrow is pointing:

Sorry about all the confusion...

Bizarrely, I couldn't find anything like that, either online or off (though I could've looked harder offline... heheh). You have my heartiest thanks for all this. ^_^
