Default GM and door panels

GM must have had a guy from NASCAR design their door panels That way they can fix you door leaks in the oil change quikee lane You don't need any tools to remove them I almost had my panel off before the wife walked around the car

The reason I had to remove the panel is because I just had another door leak on the 02 This one was on the drivers door, the same one that the dealer just replaced the window regulator not to long ago. I noticed water shortly after they worked on it but it was too cold to try to fix it.

Today I confirmed it was leaking in under the door speaker. After pulling the door panel I realized that either they guy at the dealership that worked on it or maybe someone before my ownership broke 4 mounting tabs, one of which has a broken mount base I wouldn't have had this leak if the guy who fixed my regulator had replace the butyl seal Why the H$%^ did he NOT! My carpet is soaked. Touching it with your finger makes water rise up

I didn't look for the mount tabs while I was getting the Ribben seal at Auto Zone but does anyone know it they sell them or do I have to go to the dealer for them?
