for a 1997 Ram 1500 5.2l 4x2 automatic Laramie SLT trim pickup?
There are five of these across the black plastic exterior trim at the bottom of the windshield.
O'Reilly, Advance and AutoZone all say try the dealer or the junkyard.
Dealers all say obsolete ... no pick-n-pulls in reasonable driving range.

This thing looks like one of those plastic buttons you use to hold trim panels, the insulating blanket under the hood, etc. in place.
But. It isn't a spike, it's a cap, with threads on the inside. It is black and plastic. Help? (I need two of these things.)

Next time I go to Pull-A-Part, I'll be happy to look. It might be a while though. I do need to get a rear window motor for my Grand Caravan. I've got one that works sometimes.

That's IT! Thanks ever so.
They are exactly the same as the ones on the 2007 trucks, so I will have one on Tuesday at the dealer's.
(FWIW: they used this retainer on the windshield cowls from 1994-2007). They were out of stock after I got the last one today. :)
The dealer is cheaper for one than Ebay or Amazon, at least here.
