    Need help identifying the fastener for this leather door trim piece

    Since I purchased it, my CSi had this part of the door panel hanging a bit. I've never had the need to dig into the door panel so I just let it slide. I will be changing my door handles soon so it's a good time to get this repaired. I went to the diagrams and I can't tell if the #3 "Body Nut" is what holds the panel in place. Any help identifying the piece that I need, or confirming that I need #3, will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks gents!

    Yep, #3, but if the pin is broken, you can't reattach.

    Stamped nut, typical many places.
    Plastic pin from insert's substrate.


    Have your glue gun ready for ducts, etc.
    Clips for around the perimeter, etc.

    Let's hope it's just a missing nut!

    FYI, this piece is NLA. Looks like its a simple quick-nut so I'll try to source it at the hardware store when I take it out.

    If thats your missing nut, all muscle cars use them. Both my Chevelles and Vette have them pretty much everywhere on trim pieces all around the car

    Hope that helps

    I have also used rectangular speed nuts that you can find at lowes or home depot or Ace Hardware. They work just as well.
