I put my cynicism aside & went the the Citroen dealer, came back with 20 new clips for not much more than a fiver. They are a different shape from the ones on the vehicle but *work absolutely fine*. Have seen the same on Ebay/Amazon, hardly any price difference, BUT !> autoclips.co.uk - further visits to site revealed part out of stock & they said they would phone back. Never heard a thing from them, perhaps one to avoid.
*The Citroen clips*: As I have said these work fine but note this: when I put the first new clip in place it fell out as the fit is too loose; after a few expleteives the problem was solved by wrapping a short length of sellotape around the clip retaining lug to hold it in place. This could also be achieved by sticking a piece of bluetak in the lug. Once you have done this to all 14 clips the trim panel goes back on fairly easily.....
A few well placed screws would have been a better solution in the original design and easily breakable plastic cilps would not be necessary.
