Does anyone know where I could get these from? Or have/know where to get a tool to remove them?
I got a bunch from the toyota dealer when I ordered the hardware to install my skirts (I thought they were screws, it was hard to tell in the diagram), but i need to remove and re-install becuase the 3M tape isn't holding the greatest.

I went to Canadian tire with no success and got some from piston ring but they turned out to be slightly to small.
They need to fill a 3/8" hole.

When pushed in, the four "arms" so to say, expand, holding the plug and side skirt in place.

    NAPA on Ellice has a reference book and decent selection of plastic fasteners, if you bring one in they should be able to find a match. Bring a caliper just in case for taking measurements.

    You could also go to the dealer if you want to spend $$$.
    I consider every deleted post a small victory.

        Thanks, Ill give that a shot.
        I got them from the dealer(The one pictured)  for about a buck a piece, which surprisingly is really close to the price I paid for the ones from piston ring.
        Which are essentially the exact same, just slightly smaller

          I've seen this stuff at Rondex, and I'm certain other bodyshop supply stores will also carry clips and fasteners.

          Part Source on Pembina had a rack with a good selection, possibly other locations do too.

              How many do you need Colin? I could possibly grab you some from my work or even something similar that will work.

                10, unless I manage to break/mangle some :lol:
                That'd be cool, but if not, no worries. Keep me posted!

                    Dang not bad.
                    I didn't think to check ebay, was hoping to get local so I didn't end up with the wrong size, after waiting for shipping.
                    Thanks!

                      Yours are easy. You should see the ones I can't find for the Tundra.
                      That said, if I see anything on the shelves I'll let you know.

                        I'd say eBay or Canadian tire if not lookup oem Toyota parts. On google. Worst case scenario go to the dealer

                          You could try a Toyota body shop. They should have a large supply from either cattons or wurth.

                            My dad had ordered two huge bags full of the Honda ones off of ebay for a fraction of the price and you couldn't tell the difference. You could most likely find something similar.

                              eBay for sure if you aren't in a rush for them and can wait for them to arrive.
                              By far the best bang for your buck in terms of quantity.

                                    Does this remove them without mangling them to pieces like my flat heads do? :lol:
                                    I wonder if these are available locally.

                                        Yea they should. They even come with some Mastercraft screwdriver sets. This is a common tool for autobody/autoglass shops.

                                            the PA one is too thick, but i've ground mine down to the thickness of a butter knife and works like a beautifully now.

                                              The use of these wretched plastic fasteners on lower panels that are removed often for service jobs is ridiculous.
                                              Quite often I'll toss them and use Nutserts and bolts:

                                              They run under a buck each and hand install tools are cheap enough.
