Trim and trunk lock questions.

Ok so stripped down boot components today for paint.

1, on item number 9 there is a small electrical plug, one of the two tiny clips fell off (appears to be two microswitches) can this be ordered as a seperate part?

I may have to order a number 9 anyway as my key won't insert into the key hole, is it possible to repair this part or is this perhaps evidence of someone trying to force the trunk at some point.

If I have to get an entire number 9, is it a diy job to match the keys, or will I have to settle for a seperate key for the trunk?

Many thanks


Bonus question...

I can't find on realoem part numbers for the side trim on the doors, I can find the numbers for the weather strips, locks etc but not the side trims, I can salvage my trims but do need new clips and can't find the numbers!

I'm talking about the black trims hlaf way up the outside of the door and the clips which run on a "rail" on the inside of the trim piece.
