Battery cover trim panel question

Before I get flamed for asking this question, I would like to state that I have looked at realoem and bmwpartsupply and it only shows the panels and no clips.

My question is, does anyone know the part number to the clips that hold the side trim cover that hides the battery behind it? It has two clips that are to be pushed in and then turned 90 degrees to lock in place. I don't have a picture of it cause my vehicle is missing them on the right and left side.

Simplest thing is to call the Dealer parts department and tell them what you need. They'll have them, since those clips get lost by the bucketfull every day . Probably a couple of bucks each.

Bet your are down in the spare tire well. There's a tiny Black Hole there that sucks parts in, especially those clips.
