Default Door Panel removing

After working on MANY CARS; taking off a door panel; no matter a front or rear door many times MANGLES the OEM clips and they need t9o be replaced
Does anyone have an aftermarket part number for these clips or retainers or whatever Chrysler decided to call them? AND a decent source would be nice too ;-)

Have you taken off the panels yet? I have had mine off several times and never broke a clip.

Look online,or check your local parts store they may have them,or similar....and they'll be a whole lot less!....Like these on Ebay: 25 Chrysler LH Series White Nylon Door Panel Retainers | eBay

Personal experience had taught me to have extras on hand ALWAYS; my 97 Taurus was especially a candidate; it mangled clips after removal and I wasn't forcing etc...

I have a few auto paint detailer ships here that specialize in stiff like this at VERY reasonable prices; I am just trying to get ready for any events when I change out the OEM speakers. ONE vendor had about a dozen different kinds for Chrysler...this will be all new to me come Friday, a welcome thing!!!

I think someone goofed...should be maybe 8.18 ea shipped? Dealer retail West Coast Northern Ca is 6.42 ea and east coast Fla 6.72.

Default Re: Door Panel removing

It appears the construction of a PT Cruiser door is a LOT different than what I am used to in other cars...especially my 97 Taurus; every 'pin' was the same and went around the boundary of the door and was 'pushed' into a corresponding hole in the door; they all had multi layered ribs on them so they acted like a screw more or less constraining to the door.
Hopefully my upcoming HAYNES manual will have illustrations and maybe part numbers in addition to your link.

Thanks for taking the time...

Just to back up what was already mentioned, as I know exactly on how you feel on door clips breaking.

I also have had my front and rear door panels on and off at least a half dozen times, with NO clip breakage.

The little boogers are pretty strong (and a bear to get off).
