Clips/screws for interior trim?

Hi all
I've got trim pieces falling off and I need to find the screws/clips to put them back on. Does anyone know where I can get them or have a picture I can refer to in order to buy some similar ones? I'll attach some pics.

Your local parts store may have most of them in the Dorman/HELP section or try your local auto body supply store.
Fleabay too!

Hawks has a full interior screw kit... covers most things, the clips are another story I found some of those 25 in one kits on amazon to cover everything but those large plastic screws in the hatch. Hawks has those as well as dorman etc.

Re: Clips/screws for interior trim?

I guess I'm not understanding the question. If you're asking what's missing, you're missing the B pillar trim panel, and the speaker cover (sail panel). Looks like the inner 1/4 trim isn't screwed down to the inside of the body, and also the rear trim that goes behind the headliner looks to be missing since it'd somewhat hold the inner 1/4 panel in place.

The screws for the inner quarter are phillips screws about 1" long, self tappers. The speaker covers are held up by the coat hanger which has about a 2" long phillips screw that holds it all tight at the top. The B-pillar trim uses a short phillips trim screw at the bottom, and the top clips into the back of the A-pillar/headliner trim, with a push in retainer like you'd find on the door panels clips into the B-pillar trim and pushes into the inner quarter trim, but honestly that retainer isn't absolutely necessary.

B-pillar trim

B-pillar trims - note screw hole at the bottom, tabs on back side that key to the sheetmetal of the body

1/4 trims, note retainer in one of the panels

Hardware - shortest is for the B-pillar trim, medium is the 1/4 trim, long is the coat hanger screw.

Honestly I'd hit the junkyard for this stuff if I didn't have 20 years worth of pocket screws from junkyard trips. This is literally the kind of thing you put on the counter at the junkyard and they don't even charge you 90% of the time.
