    Buy or trade: grill retaining clips, turn signal socket retainer

    I need 3 of the small metal clips that hold the grill in and the small plastic socket that inserts into the bumper reinforcement and hold the turn signal in on the 83 model. I may also need an 83 L turn signal if I can't repair mine. Pm or email, thanx.
    I wonder if the clips and socket can be bought from Toyota. I've been looking for aftermarket turn signals to no avail.

    Ok, update. I called Toyota and the parts guy found 7 of those clips in Portland. I bought 3,so there are 4 left. Still need the silly little, plastic socket for the left turn signal.

    Omkar, the plastic sockets for the turn signals are very likely still available new from Mark. I bought a few about a year ago. The pn is 81219-14040 and Toyota calls them bearings. They weren't very much although I don't remember exactly. If I had to guess, I think 4 were in the $10 range. Unfortunately, I used a couple and have since given the extra set I bought to a good home. If they're NLA, I may have a good one somewhere, LMK. Hope this helps.

    Thanx Ray, I'll contact him. I was going to anyway, but Toyota in MT said they were discontinued.

    As far as the Micky-duck grille clips,Greg ('82 Supra) posted a substitute fix for those little plastic parts. A few 5 or 6 mm bolts was involved.The pix or the method wasn't clear to me.
    I must have had my grille off 4 times in 11 years. Fog lamps issues,mostly.
    Yeah,I got those
    "poppers" from Ray to fix my L.F. turn signal. I had it glued in with Shoe Goo B-4.

    It was collecting water from excessive car washes.
