Default Plastic firewall plugs

So I finally found the source of a rattle that would appear around 3500 rpm. It was driving me crazy. It's the a/c line that is attached to the fire wall. The plastic plugs the bracket screws into are stripped out and it vibrates. I'm looking for some replacement plugs or a part number or an aftermarket generic part that will work, anything. I have some tape on there now to quiet it down but that won't last. I circled the part in this picture I stole from the a/c retrofit thread. The bracket in the picture isn't the one that is my problem. It's the one with two screws that is to the right of the one in the picture, but I believe the plastic plugs are the same. Thanks.

I'll have to measure but it looks like something in there should fit. Thanks FlintJunkie.

If you're talking about door panel clips, I have used these with great results.

01281-00171 should be what you need. Will check tomorrow and see if I can come up with a Napa part number.

Dunno what we would do without you YEPEE. You just have that knack for finding these part numbers.

UPDATE: I have found the solution. Thanks YEPEE and FlintJunkie for the help.
These are what I used and they are great! Not a squeak or rattle anymore.
