Wind Deflector Clip, Incorrect Side

Has anyone else had a difficult time getting the clip for the right side of the plexiglass? I ordered both sides and received 2 bags factory sealed with the right part #s on each bag, but both bags contained the left clip. I told the dealer and had them reorder the right side clip and have been waiting for 5+ weeks because I am told that they have gotten in numerous "right " clips that are in fact the left clip. The part # I am ordering is 986 561 7380001C.

This was reported 3 years ago when the new style clips came out.

The problem with the wrong clip still exist. Just go to the local dealer and the parts guy will get it all straightened out for you...you will probably need to wait 1 week for shipment. The part is only $2 per clip at the dealer...you will see some folks selling online for $10-15 and you also run the risk of getting the wrong part.

So can anyone confirm that the part number listed here is the correct one for the passenger side clip? I may need to pick one up, and I'm hoping to avoid confusion at the dealer.

The problem is the part number listed on the plastic bag is correct but the part inside is the wrong one. The dealer got confused too but he re-ordered and fixed the problem for me. The new clips work great compared to the old ones.

The entire part # that is on the passenger side package is 9865617380101C and the part # on the package for the drivers side is 9865617370101C. Both of these packages contained the clip for the drivers side. I'm still waiting on the dealership to tell me they have received the correct passenger side clip.
