AMG bumper - clips to hold mesh grilles?

I'm trying to locate a part number for the clips that hold the mesh grilles in place on the AMG bumper. I was told by my bodyshop that the bumper does not come with these clips and they do not have a part number for them. I called my local parts department and they are no help. Does anyone have a part number for the clips? Also, should the bumper come with the clips already in place and my shop is just fulla ****?

I no longer have the receipt, but I just bought four clips that hold the fog light mesh grill on a C32. I just asked for these clips and the parts guy brought them right out. They were .68 or .86 each.

Do they clip right onto the bumper (and mesh) or are screws, etc. required?

They clip into the bumper and then the mesh locks into them. I bought a handfull for my CL55 becuase if your not carefull when you remove the mesh you break them. You need to press back the locking tab before the mesh releases.

If the C32 uses the same clips as my CL55 bumper, the part # is : A 002 988 5181

How do you take the old ones out? Seems like the only viable choice is to tap them out with a drill? Is that safe/right? Pulling them out with a flat screwdriver just made it worse...

I just bought these clips from the dealer. At first they asked for $9.50 for one!!! Eventually, I talked them down to $4.30 each because I'm an auto parts retailer. That is still a HUGE rip off.

I just got 5 of them for $14.90USD at the Mercedes dealer in Foothill Ranch, CA. I did end up having to tap out the two upper ones with a drill as they were stuck in there pretty good, but the lower ones came out easy with a set of needlenose pliers.
