lower plastic panel on door

My SO, aka "the destroyer of Benzes" (wrecked my last 500SEL), has managed to rip out the plastic panel on the passenger side door by catching it on a high curb and pulling on the door. The panel is still held to the door from the upper attachments but is flapping like a doggie-door because nothing holds onto it at the bottom. What parts do I need to repair this? It seems like plastic holding pins were broken in the process...

I have the later "smooth" panels (the ones colored the same as my paint and without the ribbed pattern)... It seems like there's a white plastic screw/retaining clip thing involved and that has broken clean off.

I suppose the dealership's probably a good place to get a replacement. How do I remove the panel to replace the broken pieces?
