floor/mat clips for 2005 SLK R171

Hi,

Have lost three of my floor mat clips (see mat-clip.jpg). Note that these are oval..

Tried to find similar in ebay only to find that all available merc clips are round.

Q1. Where can I source said oval clips (note: I'm in Ireland)?

Q2. The male receiver on the floor are also oval (see floor clip.jpg) - can I remove these - does not seem to be possible. I have tried unscrewing and just plain tugging at same without result.

Has anybody got any ideas/suggestions??

Thanks in adv,

MikeB

Looks like the original clip felt apart. I just checked - the male receiver on the floor is round, not oval. Try to gently lift the whole thing using flat screwdriver. What you see in the center is the male receiver, the rest seems to be detached mat clip.
