Head Liner Soft Top

The other day I found a 6" metal rod laying on the passenger seat. After looking around, I saw that it came from the headliner on the side over the passenger window. Seems like it has a plastic peg that locks it in place and holds the side of the headliner in place. Does any one know if they sell these parts anywhere. I've checked Pelican and several other places but they don't show these parts. Right now it's not too bad but that side of the headliner is starting to hang down from the edge.

Is it the plastic peg that's broken (where it clips) or is it that the headliner plastic piece where that rod goes that broke?

If it's the round peg, it might just be that it came loose because of vibrations.
When I was working on my new top, they kept coming off.

I hope for you it's not the long headliner plastic retainer that broke, these are a pain in the ass to change.

Yes its the plastic peg that the rod slips into thats missing that is the problem. I found the rod but can't find the plastic part.

Sorry, I can't find the part # on the parts catalog.
I have a pair of these rods/pegs available but it would cost more in shipping than the part is worth. I would try going to a dealership see if they have some available.
