Removed the plastic undertray when i changed the oil and filter and was looking for some good quality fixings for when i put it back on. Any ideas on sizes and any links to anything anyone has used would be much appreciated.

Cheers

When you say fixing are you referring to the plastic push rivets?

Yes the push in plastic fittings, either good quality ones or maybe a stainless alternative?

I just got some last week from here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400344951102

As good quality as the Nissan ones that came off, these are the 8mm ones, you could maybe get them cheaper elsewhere if you search for 8mm push rivets (you might want to check that your holes are indeed 8mm). The ones from main dealers are an obscenely unjustified price.

I have found that this size clip is used widely in various parts of the car so good to have some spares.

I'm sure there are two different sizes. The ones at the front which clip the undertray to the valance under the front bumper are bigger
I also made a tool to remove them.

I have a tool for removing them I just think they're garbage fixings. I might have to get under there and measure the holes and have a look at alternative fixings. Something that's just a quarter turn locking unit i was thinking of.
