Window trim clips missing!

These are the clips on the opposite side.
The missing clip side.
A broken clip from the trim. I'm hoping someone knows a part number or where I could find a few of these. I've spent a few hours online searching and the local dealer claimed I'd need a whole new top to get them (doubtful). Has anyone any information on these?

Thanks for reading!

Very Common Clip

These clips are used all over 2nd gen MINI's. If your MINI has had the windshield replaced, the tech may have broken them and just left them off.

The parts person who told you that probably should not be relied on in the future.

Yep, those are the ones. People bust those up on windshield replacements or if they go through the automatic car wash and the blower hits them.

Wrong size.

So, the pieces recommended were WAY too big. The ones I need are about a third the size. Any ideas?

Sorry about that. Checking with another resource with deeper parts knowledge. More to come.
