Default Interior trim clips question

Sorry another newb question

On taking the drivers door panel off its very loose ar the bottom. Upon investigation versus the other side it appears it has no clips at all.

Ordered some form our part sponsor but they aren't correct, they look like the picture attached.

Where as the ones I need are just square with a clip bit?

Any ideas where I could get some from

Thanks again

Lee

Our sponsor are very aware of exactly what they are, unless there's someone new there or there was a mis-communication.

I've had the correct clips from them more than once. I'm sure they'll exchange them, assuming they have stock.

Interestingly, when I had a door card off recently (to fix a broken window mechanism) I found some non-OEM clips that worked fine but generally didn't break and were reusable. Stupidly I forgot to take pictures of them; I was preoccupied with the main problem.

Looking at the picture Lee attached and his description 'drivers door panel', it was indeed a sort of mis-communication. I know, because when I read his post and looked at the picture, I couldn't understand why he was saying they were wrong.

The fixings are for the lower 'rubberised' strip at the bottom of the door on the outside, and because of how the strip is fitted, they are side specific. However, as most of us know, we refer to the inside 'panel' as the 'door card'.

No big deal, and as HPsauce says, I'm sure you can exchange them. With these cars, every day is a learning day.
