Plastic rivets

2014 Abarth. The sill cladding on the passenger side of the car separated in the front because of a plastic rivet that broke. I thought that it would be easy to find more rivets but Iím coming up empty so far.
Mopar wonít sell the rivets without the sill cladding included, what a joke!
Also, I canít seem to find them on any websites, Amazon, AutoZone, etc.
It should be an easy fix but Iím not getting anywhere.
Suggestions? (I donít want to glue, tape or epoxy).
Thanks!

Re: Plastic rivets

Here are a couple of options.
Can browse by make/model, but also just browse the whole lot. Takes a long time, but can be successful. Quality is not as good as OE, often less flexible, but cheap and available counts for a lot.

Re: Plastic rivets

portland_bill - thanks for the info, ordered some rivets from vehicleclips.co.uk that are similar and, hopefully, will work. Again, thanks!

Re: Plastic rivets

Nice. Thanks for the info. Mopar wants to charge me $15 shipping on a $15 replacement clip... no thanks! Probably will get a better deal aftermarket.

We might need some for my buddy's incoming Abarth project. Got to finish installing the shocks and motorcycle exhaust on the CBR650 this week before we can take her in.
