    Hey,
    I have removed all of the black interior trim (plastic) pieces on my GenII Prius in the hopes of isolating a rear hatch squeak. The good news is that I was able to figure out my squeak issue and solved that!

    My current problem is that I'm having trouble getting the Center Panel trim piece (the one that goes over the wiper motor) to fit securely against the metal frame. I am pretty sure I destroyed or lost any clips needed to secure it, so I would appreciate a part number for the clips needed to secure that part and how many clips are needed.

    Also, are there any tricks/tips to installing that Center Panel trim piece since it looks like it's got a little lip on the top side that might fit over something.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks!

    That link looks like it is just discussing the black plastic trim price that goes over the rear hatch itself for replacing taillights, etc.

    I’m having issues with the black trim above that one, the smaller piece that fits over the wiper motor.

    If you want, take a look in the repair manual.
    I've uploaded the whole manual to my Google Drive. You should find it here:
    2006 PRIUS Repair Manual - 2006 PRIUS Electrical Wiring Diagram

    The PDF has a linked index. (Therefor the PDF viewer must show the PDF index instead of bookmarks or page thumbnails.) Thus at least one is able to jump between the chapters.
