Tailgate Rod Clips

Couldn't get the tailgate open this past weekend becasue the little clips that hold the rods in the handle broke. Just got off the phone with the stealership and this little plastic clips sells for $10.61. I don't think he liked my humor when I asked if that was a pack of 10.
Now, to find out where I can bu these things for the right amount, without paying the light bill for the the parts department today.

Anyone have any ideas where to start?

Those lil buggers are expensive!

My dad owns a repair shop. I think when we need them we go to the dealer.. Those prices are rediculous

They are freaking expensive. I know my dad borrow my truck the other day and gave me crap because i can spend all this money on performance stuff and i wont shell out $10 to get a new plastic part.

I buy parts for a living. We would pay around $.10 for that part. I picked up the ones from the parts store to see if they will work. A pack was $3.

Best thing I found is a 3/16" left and right throttle rod clip. These metal clips replace the ever breaking plastic clips...never had a problem since!
