Plastic Push Pin Fasteners

Post by smithtronics »



On my 2002 1800 there are a lot of plastic fasteners for the body work. These have started to break or malfunction. I have attempted to find replacement parts but was surprised at the price the various on line shops want for them.

Some are the rivet style with a center pin that pushes through to release. Others have a mushroom head that pulls out to release. Mine are all black in color.

Is there a source others have found for replacing these fasteners?

You might try taking examples to an auto parts store like NAPA, OReillys and see if they carry them. NAPA used to have the ones that fit the left side glove box but you did have to special order as the store did not stock. At the time I bought some I was an employee and paid no attention to the price as we had a great discount system.

You can get an assortment from wingstuff.com for a pretty fair price.

Check Home Depot they have some that will work. One type uses a screw instead of a push pins.

Thanks All for the great help. The Wingstuff site had what I was looking for, a bag of faring push pins @ $6.95 . Other sites were selling these one at a time for $2-3 each. I was not sure what to call these fasteners.

Ace Hardware usually has a wide selection of those, at least the ones around here.
