Default Front door, light cover replacement?

First i broke the plastic clear cover off, and now the light itself won't stay in the door, which means everytime the passenger door gets slammed it falls out. Where can i get these parts? The item is in the door of my 1994 Bonneville, right below the armrest.

Also, is there any place i can get the plastic ring which holds the door panel to the actual door? on the drivers' side mine broke so now the panel rattles....

Thanks, Brian

I'm going to assume you're talking about the driver'* door. I used hot glue to hold the lens on, but if your fixture is broken too, you should replace (although it can be hot glued back as well).

That should come with the lens, and is for the driver'* side. Can you be more specific on the ring you're talking about? I'm lost.

Thanks for the quick reply will! I ordered the part, although i needed the passenger door light. (PART# 2554179 Which leads to a new question: How do you go about finding part numbers? I couldn't find the dome/courtesy light anywhere on GM Direct, it was only after calling a dealer and getting the part number that i could find it on the website. (I feel kinda guilty about calling dealers for part numbers which i intend to buy elsewhere).

As for my other problem (the drivers door panel) i know there are push retainers which are worn and need to be replaced, but also when i pulled the panel out a bit and looked between it and the door, it looked like a big piece of plastic was cracked which usually is the main attachment point (right at the bottom of the armrest). An auto body shop said it would be $100 to fix, and that would only be labor and using a gluegun, not getting any new parts. SO once it gets warmer i'm going to try and remove the panel and glue whatever it is together myself. Does this sound at all familiar to you? I have yet to actually take the panel OFF....... Either way i think a glue gun might be a good investment as my car gets older and keeps trying to drop body parts off.
