    Default 2003 Crown Victoria Various Door Panel Fasteners

    Anybody got a spare torx screw that holds down the inside plasticky door handle on a 2003 or like years CV? The associated clip nut would help me to, since I buggered up the threads. If you happen to also have the regular hex screw and clip nut for the hidden fastener under the RR window switch panel, that would help too. I'll pay for the trouble of dropping it into a padded envelope and mailing it to me if anyone has something lying around.

    I have been working so much, I don't know when I'll get down to the local Crown Vic junkyard again (one county away). Searched the internet high and low, including ebag, no luck. Moral of the story - don't attempt to work on door after working a double shift to try to get your stuck in "down" position right-rear window up in the pouring rain under the physically draining side effects of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine round two - what a nightmare from hell Blood everywhere, lost fasteners and a potential brain aneurysm.

    Thanks

    Somebody's got to have a parts car or a door with the hardware I need. I'll give twenty bucks for the trouble of grabbing said screws and clip nuts and mailing them to me....

    Do you happen to have a pic of the part you need? There may be a dorman part.

    Good point, but I already researched that. No dice. Here's a pic of the upper screw and clip nut I need from the internet (the other screw I need is just a common hex head + slide-on clip nut combo):

    ah... that's the metal version. I'm used to the plastic versions for the doors. I've not needed to take the doors apart on my whale so far.

    The handle is plastic. This is the metal piece that mounts in the door and hooks to the latch linkage and to which the plastic piece fastens. I needed only the screw and special nut because I buggered mine up. I was able to purchase this piece on ebay, but don't really need anything except the screw and nut.

    I STILL need the correct clip nut and hex head screw that fastens the panel to the door under the window control if anyone has one! Please?

    Thanks to a member who kindly stepped up, and ebay, I should have everything I need soon. Can admin freeze or delete this thread? Thanks

    Yeah... I'm used to the older cars that the clip nuts are plastic inserts instead that hold the bolts. Glad you got the parts coming.

    Closed.
