Trunk Panel Clips

Does anyone know where to buy or even the part number for the clips that secure the plastic tray that sits inside the trunk? They are metal and clip into the metal of the trunk. Mine have been lost in the abyss. I might stop by the dealership when I have some time and see if they can help. See below (not my car):

Not seeing it on discountinfinitiparts.com.

Not the first time, the "finisher strips" along side the windshield aren't listed there but the dealer can find them. Looks like that's your next best option. Or a junk yard.

Haha will do man! I might try and stop by this weekend. I also need to find out the size of the 3 bolts for the front strut mount. I need to replace one, maybe they can help. If not I'll just size it up once I remove it to do my suspension overhaul/upgrade.

Side note: I am contemplating getting that plastic trunk piece done by Carbon Fiber Elements, we shall see...

The Infiniti dealer was unable to help. I've never had a good experience with Cool Springs (Franklin, TN). Part diagram did not show the clip anywhere and could not guarantee they come with a new panel (which I would not do). I may just retrofit something to get it to work. I'm going to keep looking though. Also something worth mentioning is that there are 2 small rectangular plates below the trunk latch that appear to be removable. If they are I am going to remove them and see if I see the clips anywhere.

Found a good website for clips:
https://www.clipsandfasteners.com/Nissan-Infiniti-Clips-Fasteners-Retainers-s/14.htm?searching=Y&sort=13&cat=14&show=450&page=1

FYI this is the white plastic clip that are used on the fuse panel and passenger side footwell tirm panels, 01553-09791. Used a digital vernier to verify the size.
https://www.clipsandfasteners.com/Ni...8.htm?CartID=1

I had Infiniti look up the part above as well and he called me back later saying you have to order the whole fuse trim/panel. I almost laughed and hung up. These are clips widely used throughout many Nissan/Infiniti models. This is why I do most research/purchasing online. I can never rely on what the dealer has told me or other shops. I hate how automotive repair is such a sketchy industry.

I think for any other future clips I'll just use my digital vernier to measure it and pick some up down the road at Advance.

These look damn close. I wish I had one still for reference. Part # 11296-3TA0A, check the link:
https://www.clipsandfasteners.com/Ni...A-p/a22198.htm

Could one of you guys do me a favor and pull your cover and see if the clips look like the ones above? Thanks!

I laud your persistence. I would have just gone to a junkyard after the dealer's first "nope".

Yeah...the junkyards "near" me are just a pain to get to and deal with. The less I have to drive around Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin the better lol.

Well the clips I purchased above appeared they might work. I was able to wedge them onto the plastic tabs on the cover but they would not hook/latch onto the metal. Can anybody snap a pic of one of theirs and post it? I'm going to keep looking. I use my trunk a lot for mine and my son's lacrosse equipment. It's annoying knocking that thing out every time when removing things. Thanks in advance guys!
