Where to find plastic pins for engine under cover?

2018 Fit EX. I ran over some frozen manure and did some minor damage to the undercarriage protection. I believe I am missing the two rearmost push pins for the plastic under cover. The rest of the cover is held on with screws but I think the rear is held on with push pins. Anyone know where I can find these?

Thanks.

imo, the oem retainer clip sucks. I use something like THIS:




(its beefy, once its in there, its NOT going anywhere. much more durable as well, I've yet to break one, and my other cars are all LOW, much lower than cars ive seen on these boards)

Thanks for the suggestion! But are they easy to remove? The clips in question really don't have much stress on them--even without them the rear of the shield only sags a little. I'm mostly interested in not making oil changes more difficult.

that sucker is really ON THERE. in the following photo example, the 3 middle pieces (any pry tool, or even a flat head should work) all work fine and makes for effortless removal

I use the same alternative as I've got hoards of them from my past e36's. The Honda twist type just come off WAY too easy and often,

*You can use an old fork too, so you don't really need a trim tool (unless you have them already, or need them for other things too).

I would stray away from flathead screwdrivers for those, as they chew up the head too much

Thanks a lot
