Where can I order clips for rear mud flaps

I guess theses self lockers can only be used once correct?

Thanks!

No, they are re-usable, just need to get a screw driver behind them and pry the centre back out,

I lost a couple and went to the wreckers,
I get 10 for $2.
As the Stealership [Dealership] wanted $3 for one, yes only 1.

They're called 'scrivet's'.

Found them new on eBay for 10 bucks it'll save me mucking around, if I was in the bush I would probably try your screw driver trick thought.

Thanks guys

There are a number of scrivet (screw fit rivert) but the one you have is a pin design.

To remove a pin scrivet, you pull up the centre pin (a small screwdriver can help) until it clicks, then you pull up on the main body of the scrivert (a small screwdriver may help) until the whole scrivet is removed.

If you look at the scrivert itself, the center pins when pushed in stops the sides of the main body from squeezing together. As such the scrivert can hold a part to a panel (when inserted onto the hole which is the same diameter as the long part of the main body). With the pin partly removed, the sides of the main body of the scrivet can squeeze together allowing the scrivert to be pulled from the panel hole and part itself

Judging from your picture, your scrivets still look usable so not sure what the problem is and why you needed to buy anything?

It's because I'm used to deal with these poxy VW clips on my transporter and they are a pain when you want to put them back on! But yes good advice, I will spare buying new ones next time for sure.
