Wheel liner, inner fender panels

The inner wheel liner has two removable panels on the drivers side. These panels use plastic twist fasteners on the corners. I broke a few of the twist fasteners and want to replace them. The part diagrams are not very specific, I guessed and received the wrong parts. Are the fasteners available separately, or does one need to order the replacement panel?

If you are talking about the two headlight access panels, then you must purchase the complete panel(s). I have had to replace two of them. They are really cheap....

aside from the headlamp access panel... the brake duct, the lowest panel in front of the wheel, also has these twist fasteners.

I agree. Not a major investment, though it can go wrong if you're not handy.
