TAILGATE TRIM RETAINING CLIPS
#1
Have tried searching for a link to buying tailgate trim retaining clips for MK2, but each time I search I get a link is broken warning. I'm sure there was a post or 2 regarding this matter but I can't find them.
My trim is rattling big time & removal revealed missing & broken clips of two different types.

Many thanks Andre, that might be them, will have to go back & look at vehicle to double check. I also found some through Amazon that look sligtly different (but similar!) and there appear to be a pair of different types that fix at the rear wiper motor housing.
Like most people I am loath to try main dealerships due to years of dissatisfaction.

Cheers! Confusedalut:

Following up the trim clips above - the ones you linked to are different from mine Andre. However, I have located some through autoclips.co.uk
Less than £3.00 for a pack of ten; too good to be true? Maybe, they are out of stock, but perhaps the company may of use to others here in the future.

Thanks Philip, might just try that and shrug off years of cynicism. Main dealer only 2 miles away. Smile

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.
