I have a 1994 F150 XLT. It has a perfect tailgate and trim panel. Probelm is the 3 big black clips that hold the trim panel to the tailgate are broken and Ford says that they don't carry these.
Anyone know where I can get them? Thanks, Terry
They're exceptionally hard to find in useable condition in junkyards because the plastic hardens & shatters when you touch it. Broncos use a metal clip, so you might try modifying some for your pickup, or fabricating something similar.
You're telling me they're hard to find... I've called everywhere.
If I can find some metal ones from a Bronco, I might just be able to rig up something. Still, I would prefer it be right.
I was able to cut some 4 inch lengths of heavy flat garage door hanger and glue them to the clips with black RTV adhesive. I then was able to put the clips back into the grooves at the top and bottom of the panel and put the panel back on and it is holding beautifully. I tried to pull one of them apart and it's not giving.
Thanks for the advice though.
