Default Found some trim tabs under the seat

I gave my Bonnie the best vacuuming and carpet-cleaning-in-a-can that money could buy. For that extra deep clean, I went so far as to lift out the rear seat.

Underneath, I found 27 cents, a couple cigarette butts (wait a minute, I don't smoke…), and these plastic things that look like trim holders. They were just loose under the seat, not holding much of anything.

Can anyone identify these?

Looks like the tabs that hold the carpet in the trunk.

They spilled out of a package, they are new.

On our cars they are used for tons of things. You'll find them holding the hush panels to the dash, in the trunk holding carpet, holding body panels and plastic in place etc etc.

Ha, when I did my first cleaning of my car, I removed the rear seat and found a packet of peanut butter and a packet of jelly. Didnt know they sold them that way.

Yes.. That and I eat a lot of peanut butter sandwiches at work... Peanutbutter fills me up for a longer period of time and it has protein in it..
