Where can I buy body molding clips/fasteners?

While attempting to back out of a parking spot, my wife hit a divider knocking the plastic/nylon molding on the lower front passenger door off. This wound up messing up all but two of the clips/fasteners that attach the molding (out of the six or so I believe) to the door. I called a local Ford dealer who said they don't sell the clips/fasteners separately from the molding. I'd rather not spend the $250 or so for the molding right now. Does anybody know where I can buy just the clips/fasteners?

Thanks!

Are these the ones?

Green and dirty, but hard to find... I may have a few here and there.

Donner, the clips are white and the part that connects to the molding is quite a bit smaller. Is there any way to attach an image to this thread?

I sent Northland Fasteners email and they confirmed that this was the part so I ordered 2 bags (3 in each bag). I'll let you all know how they work when I get them...

Original panel has some scratches, but nothing you'd notice from more than 20 feet away. I'm actually replacing the rear coil springs and struts this weekend due to broken springs (both of the back). Figure I've gotta do that for safety, my wife taxis the kids to their activities with the Explorer. I have no plans on replacing the panel since it's only cosmetic and I doubt getting a new one would increase the value of the Explorer at all.

Please order from them... That will provide a resource if you are successful.

Sorry I didn't let everyone know sooner, the ones I ordered from Northland Fasteners worked great. They have changed their domain name, you can now find them here.

Are these still available?

I could use these green molding clips, one exactly. Do you still have a few?

Appreciate your help.

Thanks,
