My dealer's parts dept. ordered 4 for me. Desc: W711289 S300 : RIVET
Exactly the same part and only cost $.85 each

|This1GoesTo8||Argh, no dice. Partscheap said the same as my local dealer: it's part of the kit. I'll try the auto parts stores, and save the crazy route of getting a whole new kit for a last resort. Thanks for the help!|

|This1GoesTo8||Oh, sweet! I considered that, since I bought the kits from them, but being basically the Parts Department for a dealer in Chico, I figured I'd get the same answer as my local dealer. I'll give them a call.|

|Some Guy From NY||Pretty sure you can buy these push rivets in any auto parts store. They will look exactly the same as the OEM ones.|

Something like this?
I just googled plastic rivets auto and found this. I have the ford flaps on mine and I think it was something like this. I installed mine over a year ago, so memory not so good. Or maybe this?

Lost a splash guard fastener
As the title says, I lost a fastener while installing my splash guards, so now my right front has a hole that desperately needs a pin. I went through all the usual channels (Dealer Parts Dept., PM to Crystal (thanks for trying!), chat on FordParts), and all say the fasteners are only part of the kit, and can't be found separately.
I'm rather stubbornly particular about parts, so I'm looking for the same retainer as in the kit, and before pulling the trigger on a whole kit just for one fastener, I'm wondering if anyone else has gone through this, and found the parts, or has done what I'm about to do, and can let me have an extra. If not, I'll just get a new front kit, and make the extra parts available for whomever might need them.
