Power window and power lock controls broke, anyone know a good way to fix this?

Hard to explain but the pics show what im talking about.

When i bought my truck, the power window and lock controls popped out of the passenger door panal. It seems that the plastic piece underneath the control panal that slides into the clip broke off with the screw in it and im at a loss with how to fix it. I don't wanna glue it and i was wondering if maybe anyone on here had a good idea on how to fix it. I can get the screw out no problem and re use the clip, but the plastic that slides into the clip is busted. Therefore, whenever i hit a bump or something, the window and lock panal pops out of the door panal. Like i said its kind of hard to explain what im talking about, but the pictures show it.

If this info is needed, its a 97 XLT F250. Thanks.

Well if you don't want to glue the tab back in place, about your only other option is to replace the panel. Even if you were to fab another piece in for the clip nut to slide onto, the only clean way to attach the fabbed piece to the panel would be to glue it in place.

Funny how that happens.... Yuh, the door inner panels are getting hard to come by, and aren't cheap, even used, when they can be found. Just count yourself lucky it's not the driver's side on a CC truck; bigger switch pod, different panel, even harder to find....

If I get the chance this weekend I can look and see if there is a grey interior power window and lock door panel at our junkyard and if there is one I can snag it. Message me and we can talk about it more if you haven't fixed it.
