The lower most side vent clip on my drivers broke and I need to replace it.

After examining it, it appears that I can remove the wheel and the wheel liner to get to it. I also may be able to get to it without removing anything with an allen wrench (assuming it takes an allen wrench or a swiveling screw driver if it doesnt).

Can anyone confirm this?

Also, besides the dealer, where can I get a clip. My nearest dealer is 1.5 hours away and I don't wanna make the trip just for a clip.

Thanks

Yea, I realized earlier today that vent is a little confusing. I thought about calling it the side scoop, but only exiges have scoops. Grill is also a bit confusing since they are usually on the front of the car.

Anyways its the piece in the middle of the car behind the drivers door on the outside. Here are some pics, and from feeling the bolt it feels like it takes an allen wrench.


I took a look at the parts manual and it looks like I need part 17, 18 and 20. The clip isn't attached to the inside of the grill so I'm assuming I lost it while driving.
