    While installing a new radio, I somehow lost one of the little metal
    "clips" that hold the fascia in place. So it's kind of loose. Is it
    some standard form of clip I can get anywhere, or does it need to be
    ordered from hyundai?

    Several manufacturers probably use them, but I don't know where you'd get
    one generically unless you know someone who has a collection of those
    types of clips. Your easiest bet is to probably go to the dealer and
    order one, or if you're on really good terms, they may ask a couple of the
    technicians if they can scrounge one up. Techs tend to hold onto whatever
    spare stuff like that they can get because they know how useful it is when
    they're in a pinch.

  3. You might also want to check with local radio installers. There's always
    the option of hitting a local junkyard. I'm sure you could get a handful
    of these for little or no cost, especially if you're buying something else.

    The guys that supply body shops with materials often have racks of clips for
    all kinds of cars, all kinds of trim pieces. It's worth a couple of phone
    calls. Hyundaitech's advice is good as well, but I'd add that it would pay
    to go to the dealer's body shop and not the parts counter. Just like
    aftermarket body shops, the dealer's body shop usually has miscellaneous
    stuff laying around. I've picked up a lot of small stuff this way.
