Plastic Pins in Door Panels

I had to pop off my son's door panel the other day. Several of those little plastic pins that hold the door panel to the door are either broken are screwed up in some way. The door is on but just doesn't feel real solid to me. Where can I get a new set of those plastic pins?

Its a 2005 LT Sedan with the Pioneer sound system if that makes a difference.

Your dealer has them $$$, but you can also get them at autobody supply stores and NAPA has a selection also.

They dont quite look like those. Mine were the type with a serated edge (for lack of a better word) that when you pushed them in made it diffucult to remove. The clips in the picture appear to be a 2 pc design. Not sure if they would work or not. I kind of wish I would have taken a picture of them now.

I was looking at diagrams on GM Parts Giant but I can't quite tell which part are the clips.

Kind of looks like these if I remember correctly.

I do think there could have been a couple different styles or sizes. Can't quite remember. It was a month or so ago when I had it apart.


On a similar note. I would love to get a whole new (or good used) door panel. The previous owner for some reason cut out the speaker grill with a knife. I really do not know why. Now its just kind of jammed back in the whole with glue holding it. Kind of looks like crap. There really isn't a salvage yard in my area. New panels are running like $230 I didn't see one that matches on EBay. Looks like it is hard to find the panel for a Pioneer system.

You can get those at a body shop supply store. Just bring one in they will match it. All kinds on just search for Cobalt door panel and color.

There is a panel on ebay, same color except not with the pioneer tweeter. Its not a huge necessity so I will keep my eye out for one. Its my son's car. He don't seem to mind but that kind of little petty stuff just bugs me.
