Vcatalina, English is not my first language, i want to know what is the term to search for on Ebay? On the workshop manual it is called "elastic nuts"

It misses the part that i really wanted to know
I managed to get the last two which are behind the instrument panel out later in the day as the weather got hotter and they got softer and i just pushed them with a thin screwdriver in so they expand and be narrower, then gently pull them out, they took a bit of time. In the morning when it was a bit cold they were stiff like plastic.
After taking all of them out and putting back on and installing, i found that few of them are not being compressed when screwing the bolt, apparently the glue of the metal part and the rubber part got screwed either from me fiddeling them or from the hot weather we got here "in dubai it reaches 50C"
As most are in place and it is still very sturdy, but i want everything to be as designed so i'll order some and replace the bad ones as i know the trick now.

Thanks all for helping.
