Looking for clips for roof molding

I'm looking for clips that attach an exterior roof /upper trim molding on a 2005 Altima 2.5S.

The molding in question is a single piece of black trim about 7 feet long and 1 inch wide--one on each side of the car--which runs up from the bottom of the windshield across the roof--inset approximately 2 inches from the edge--to the top of the back window. The trim is attached by two DIFFERENT types of clips. The four clips attaching the trim along the edge of the windshield are not the same as the four clips attaching the trim across the roof. I'm looking for the ones along the windshield.

The clip in question is a 3/4-inch long piece of black plastic with a "prong" protruding at each end that holds the trim in place. The base of each clip plugs into one of four plastic slots spaced evenly along the windshield. The clip has the following number stamped on the top: [f] 13 5019-0

The trim detached from the car while I was driving on the highway, and I could only recover a single clip of the type I need. I tried the dealer, but the illustrated parts breakdown seems to only include the clips for across the roof. I had no luck with online parts searches. Surely these clips must be available somewhere.

Any help in obtaining them would be MOST appreciated!

Tim

I wonder if those clips are only included with the entire molding? Of course it would be over $100 for that. You may want to hit up some local junk yards.

Altima02DUB - What did you end up doing, reusing the old clips?

phreekee25 - Thanks for the tip. I searched both sites and found clips that are similar, but none were were a slam-dunk match. I sent emails to both companies, and to CAR-PAK in Troy, MI, to see if they could help.

Victory!
Got a reply from Northland Fasteners, and they carry the exact clips under part number N21097. They're not listed on the website but can be special ordered at $4.15 for a package of ten plus S&H.

* Windshield Clips
* Width: 22mm
* Length: 46mm
* Nissan 2004-On
* Nylon

Thanks for all the help, especially the lead from phreekee25.

Well I finally received the roof mouldings today. Well they come with the 4 clips for the windshield but not the clips for the roof. So I'll be ordering the clips.
