had headliner replaced and now all my clips are broke

So I paid a shop to replace my headliner a couple days ago, and immediately I had the plastic piece below the b pillar fall off. They broke both horizontal clips on the upper side of the piece, but I figured I could keep that together with automotive tape. The part that really is irratating is the panel the sunroof and garage door controls is on. All the clips have been broke off, and I currently have resorted to duck tape lol. Can I just buy a new panel and transfer the electronics over? and advice is appreciated. thanks

the two pics are what I have found for sale, and what I have. Could I still use this one, but need to cut out the center section?

And you paid them? Go the hell back there and rip 'em a new asshole. Get every penny back or make them buy all new panels.
