windshield cowel fasteners

I am having some issues find the parts I need for holding down my windshield cowel, I thought they were a large screw on nut, but I have also been seeing links for plastic push pin type things.

it seems the 93-95 ZJs just used basic screws, but in their infinite wisdom changed it to something stupid for the 96-98 years.

These black oval head Phillips head screws parts, for the part near the wipers? I found my replacements at the local hardware store.

Second gen ZJs(96-98) use a push pin style fastener for the cowl with a fake torx head.

I always just grab a handful when Iím at the junkyard so I canít recommend a brand / vendor.

NAPA has a very large selection of body panel retainers. Take one into the local store, and look through their very large book.

X2 for Napa.
The book that Noble One is talking about is a big loose leaf binder.
It is the actual part in there not just an illustration.
Makes finding a match or something that will work very easy.

went to NAPA and they didn't have any of what I was looking for in their big book of fasteners, was able to order 10 on Amazon for just under 6$ for 10 clips.

Can you post a link, or the part number, so others might order?
