Any Toyota dealership.

They aren't too pricey, but make the shop pick up the bill if they can't find them.



That's why I do oil changes myself.

The shop I used to go to wouldn't even remove the clips, but rather bend the plastic. thumbsdown

I don't live in LA bro. Look for an auto store, something that sells car parts.

They left my clips out and the wind would push it down at certian speeds. I kept having to bend it and cram it up in there once I figured out what that noise was.
I got them to give me new clips and put it back on for free. It wasn't even the same dealership that forgot them. Very nice.
It's a bit chewed up looking now. I do not recommend leaving them off. They protect the underbody and are aerodynamic. BTW, they are like $90 to replace.
