    Inside door side plastic piece clips

    That cool ZHP carbon fiber design plastic panel can still get clipped in, but only the right two clips are still legit. The one on far left is broken, and to make matters worse, maybe from the Florida heat, the plastic panel has bent up and away from the door a bit so even if I fixed this, that pressure would cause problems again.

    So

    1. Do they sell replacement clips just for this part?
    2. Is there a safe way to bend back the plastic piece, maybe with the help of a heat gun?

    FYI those clips can be removed by sticking a large screwdriver into them, turning 90 degrees, and pulling straight out. Easiest to swing by a parts yard and fill your pockets with them.

    It's weird that realoem doesn't show that part used on the coupe.

    Coupes and verts have cube trim on the armrests, unlike sedans which have individual pieces on the door cards.

    OP has a sedan. I have a coupe & looked up the part for reference/fun = no application.

    You see how it's curling away from the clips?

    Meaning even with new clips, there'll be constant pressure away from the door causing possible detachment again.

    Should I risk using a heat gun or some other temperature related technique to fix this, or will the replacement clip be strong enough to overcome this ....
