Plastic nut that holds the cover/liner in rear trunk

Hello all,

I'm looking for the part number of the black plastic nut in the rear trunk that holds the cover/liner. I tried to look it up in the catalog and spent like an hour looking for it but couldn't seem to find the right number.

When we remove the rear cover/liner, these nuts need to be removed. I think there are 2 of these on both corners near the rear light.

Any help will be much appreciated!

I searched an on line shop manual for over an hour and could not find it. A quick call to the dealership will get you a price and a part number. Get the part number and search Sunset, Pelican or any other part supplier for a better price.

Top view of the nut. The x or + like opening in the top is where the screw snaps into it.

The rear trunk diagram (closest to number 5 or 13) does not look anything like this one

Dealer didn't have a clue so I'm gonna need to show them the nut in person.

Thanks Mike,
2 of these- 999.049.020.40 plastic nut T5/30 x 5,1
6 of these- 999.049.024.40 plastic nut T5/40 x 8
Just wanted to confirm the correctness so I posted this message again for others to confirm. I already got it ordered, thanks!

How do they go back on?

I know this is dumb...But... I took them off and can not get them back on. I tried to twist, screw, push, and force but, they just do not seem to go back on?

Weird?
