    Junkyard - or snoop through a Fastenal store. They carry many types of the plastic "rivets" used to hold stuff together in cars - at a price that is 1/6 of the dealer pricing. If you only need 2 or 4 of the poprivets, look on the Help! racks at large parts stores.

    The light assembly retainer bolts - OEM replacements will be junkyard pullouts. Dirt cheap. Use a tad of anti-seize on the threads - a tad.

    FWIW, my local Fastenal store stopped selling fasteners singly. You have to buy the entire box (usually a 25 count).

    Any well stocked hardware store will have some replacements. These aren't specialty items.
