Sliding door interior upper trim retainers.

Yep, broke both trying to remove.They are just a long "christmas tree" push in retainer.94 and back did not use them.They came in different colors, for different trim colors.None available from GM? The aftermarket replacement(as near as I can tell) comes in grey only, part # 15986343, aftermarket # 18371. Do not know if this is accurate, but the dimensions seem right, gonna order some.

Are these the really long ones? I can look at the JY for you next time I'm there -- but they tend to be really brittle.

I am not sure which one you mean:

The Top Trim around the door...

241.1 Sliding door window trim-back side-Top Detail

or the Trim around the door itself:

43.1 Pass. Middle trim-Pin and fastener locations-Back Top Detail

Also - not sure why the color matters - are they not inside - never to be seen - "But By US" ?
What did you mean by: "94 and back did not use them". Do you mean 94 and before?

If so ... never mind. Maybe you mean those 2 around the "Steel Bar - Door Support - Top".
