Quick question about a small part number?

Hi guys. I just need a part number for a small fastener. I went to the Jeep OnLine Parts website, and can't find it, so I'd appreciate any suggestions.

I've got a 2015 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Extending from the bottom of the front grille to the rear edge of the bumper (on the top surface), there's a "shelf" that covers the gap, about 5 inches, and it runs about the width of the grille.
This shelf is held in place by two fasteners (these are what I need to replace) -- they have a Philips head in the center, but they're made of plastic and stripped when I tried to turn them with a screwdriver.
I want to get replacement fasteners, but I can't find them on parts diagrams to get a part number.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. In advance, thanks very much.

6502625 I believe is the part number your looking for.
Quadratech sells them here MOPAR 6502625 - MOPARģ Air Dam to Bumper Push Pin for 07-16 Jeepģ Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

The screw is not really threaded, it just acts like a pop rivet so-to-speak. I have removed them with a small pocket straight blade screwdriver keeping a little tension on them and pulling up as you turn. Once you get it up a bit you can use pliars to pull it up and remove the whole piece.

Where are you located? I may have a few lying around here if you cant find them since I removed that cover piece when I changed bumpers

Thanks very much. I live in CA (Lake Arrowhead*). I'll give Quadratec a call when they open up.
I removed my cover when I installed new fog lamps, but I mangled those fasteners and want to get nice clean ones.
Thanks again!!!
[*by the way, I only moved to theLake Arrowhead area a few months agon, but it seems like this must be the capital of Jeep Wranglers -- it seems like half of the cars here are these, and it seems like the other half are Subarus. :-) ]

I'd be tempted to just run to the local hardware store and find appropriate size stainless nut and bolt??? Don't know if that would work on this.

How long have you been in Arrowhead? Your always going to see a lot of jeeps in the mountain areas, the high clearance is convenient on a daily basis and come winter time, it can get down right messy up there - when we go up and visit Tahoe it's often like a live jeep commercial

A nut doesn't seem possible -- the mounting hole disappears into the frame. Something like a moly would work if it as big enough, though, but I've ordered the OEM fasteners.

I've been in Arrowhead since October. Had no idea that wranglers were so common here until I lived here, but I can understand why :-).

Thanks for the discussion.

Expensive, agreed, but the nearest dealer is about 25-30 miles away, including a 4,000 ft change in elevation each way that, at least uphill, uses a lot of fuel. I think it's cheaper to let the post office carry my little pieces of plastic :-).

Have a great day.

My local Napa Auto parts sells lil inexpensive baggies with the type of plastic push rivet your talking and the standard push retainers like around your kick panels and b pillar. You have yo have an auto store around you in lake arrowhead? See if they have like the help line or Dorman fastners

$10 bucks you will break those clips trying to Install them...

Just buy 2 of the clip/fasteners that holds the grill, works perfect and easy to remove and reuse.

I was thinking that you're right because they were so hard to turn to unscrew them that their Philips head stripped, so I bought four (instead of the two I need). But I'm going to coat the "threads" with a lubricant when I put these new ones on, hoping they turn with less resistance.

And for the other post, sadly there's no NAPA dealer up here either :-(.
