Mine are missing and the dealer obviously thought it was OK to just cable tie it up. No mention of it though.
I may have to get a new air inlet baffle too, it has a few cracks in it but still intact at this point.
These are the ones I have: Push Type Retainer GM Ford Chrysler
. They are 8mm push type. No need for a rivet gun, just slide them in then push with the thumb to set them. You will need four. Get a box, only $4.79US + freight for 25, peanuts, and they are good for elsewhere. While you are at it, you might want to get a box of these Jeep Bumper Retainers 68033794-AA
What you have shown are ~4mm plastic rivets. Too small for this but still good for plastic trim elswhere such as around the wheel arches. Unfortunately they require a rivet gun to install. A pop-rivet gun can't be used because of the thick shank of the plastic rivet. I have one of the Y shaped guns. they are good and cheap but need more room. If you can afford it, I would recommend the right-angled ones for getting into tight spaces like between the wheel and wheel arch.
