Headlight Mounting Clips

Jeep: 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

Does anybody know if you can find the headlight clips at an auto parts store? Called the dealership but they have no clue what we are talking about. If not at an auto parts store is there a place online to get the clips?

Search the forum but couldn't find the answer so any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

No, there are 3 clips per headlight that hold it in place. There are 2 white clips and 1 black/grey clip from what I could tell.

If your headlights are cloudy it might just be easier to buy some aftermarket headlights, they come with new ones and you get more light from them if they are cloudy.

I usually keep the rectangular and the round clips in stock. PM me if you need some.

Those little clips are hard to find. My local dealer could not get them without buying the whole assembly.

I found some clips at O'Reillys. They ALMOST fit, the clips that hold it in the headlight housing were just slightly too close together. I took a lighter to it for a half a second or so just to heat up the plastic and then bent them slightly out to fit in the housing. I've had them on there for a while, they hold just fine and I haven't had any problems.

Couple cents and some TLC.

And are these pretty much a must buy when replacing the housings?

20 yr old plastic clips, they tend to break.

It's not that you need to replace them like they went bad, it's just more than likely that you will break one or more.

I just got a set from Kolak. My left headlight is aligned with zip ties and a metal shim.
