Unhappy HELP - Rover 400 1995

I recently acquired a Rover 400 which was going to be scrapped and I am looking for some parts which I can't seem to find anywhere.
I am from Malta - the model wasn't very popular here

Car is a 414 - 1995 with manual window winders and I can't seem to find anywhere the front driver's side window retainer clips.

Any help would be much appreciated! as I would like to keep the old lady on the road.

Not exactly sure what part you are looking for, is it the part that holds drivers window to winder mechanism ? Or clips that hold the window trim ? The fixings on the glass is not available seperatley as it's bonded to the glass and sold with window but I may have a couple in my shed. As for trim clips most are available from above link.
If you can take a picture of what you are looking for and post it on here we might be able to help.

That makes sense, it is the fixing that is attached to the glass. - I wasn't aware that it is actually bonded in place , What I am thinking is that with the excessive heat here in Malta in summer the bonding compound broke over time. Also the window winder mechanism was dry from grease.

photos should be in the post above.

It's happened to me in the past when we had bad winter glas has frozen solid in door so when putting window down glas remains up. Had this on rover and fords lol. I simply reapplied bonding and job done. I use bonding from local motor factor which isn't expensive and is used to hold on rear wings and body kits. Looking at the fixing in your picture it doesn't look like a genuine rover mg part, I have only ever seen white fixings on any of my rover mg cars. It also looks to be split on bottom edge.
I will look in my shed to see if I can find any and if I am in Cardiff next week I can look in breakers.
