Default Blue plastic pins that hold door skins on

What are they called? What is the white plastic that houses them called? Can I order about 5000 of them because they keep breaking?

Thanks

Please add your year and trim to your signature. That will help speed the process of finding answers to your questions based on your cars trim and year.

They are simply called interior trim retainers, interior trim pins and interior trim clips. They vary in cost from $2.50 to $350 each..so, I doubt you'll want to buy 5000 of them!

I think I edited the sig.

Thanks for the response. Any recommended sites to order them from?

If I could ask one more question, what size is the cd/radio player in the 2000 Bonneville? If I want to get an after market one to replace it, what size is it? Double DIN or Single?

The US standard for a DIN radio is 2" x 7" and the Double DIN sized radio is a 4" x 7".

your sle has a corprate double din which in laymans terms means anything will fit but may have to trim the bezel around the radio hole

The clips are called bird'* beak fasteners, and the housing they clip into is called a doghouse. The doghouse is molded as part of the door panel substrate. Send me a picture, with some dimensions, of the specific clip you have and I will see if I can get some for you. No charge. I have thousands of clips, and may have the ones you need.
