    I've searched the site and check Ford parts but have not had any luck finding these fasteners that are either missing or broken and allow the inner fender to float a bit. It's a quarter turn to release and pop free from the hole. This one has three of the four tangs broken off.

    You probably won’t find the little propriatary Ford quarter turn style but ANY local auto parts store will have either a push pin style or Christmas tree style. All work the same. My deflector is a mixture of both types.

    Like mentioned there are lots of diff styles that work. I bought a universal fastener/pin kit online years ago that has like 20-30 different sizes/styles pins and I just grab one when needed since those things break or go missing alot.

    Advance auto has many different push in fasteners. You can always go with
    a larger size, and drill out the holes to match. I use plastic rivets, then drill
    them out if I need the liner out. You can also install well nuts, or what they
    call rivet-nuts and use stainless bolts so you never have to worry about
    that again. I installed them in my cowl front radiator cover so I just
    unbolt it, using stainless dress up bolts and red washers.

    Tasca Parts has them. I ordered sets for the front and rear fender wells.

    The help section of my local auto parts store had them. They were exactly the same as the stock ones.

    I just ordered 50 aluminum M6 rivet-nuts and 20 more of those dress-up bolts. I am going to
    do my fender liners with them.

    I may do the hood-liner first... Those bolts and red washers are relatively cheap.
