Rear seat restraint flap is broken

On my 2011 M3 coupe I inadvertently pulled the little black flap the wrong way (the flap that covers the rear seat child restraint system near the bottom of the seats). It cracked/bent the plastic pins that hold it in place. Although tone of four flaps is now missing, it isn't really noticeable, but as the car is still pretty new I'd like to keep it looking that way. Is getting a little plastic part like this hard to do? I live quite a ways from a dealer. There are a few numbers printing on the back of the flap, but I don't know if any of them is a part number. Even if I had the part, I'm not sure how hard it would be to install given that the plastic pins wouldn't slide in very easily. Any thoughts?

Did the same thing, got the whole flap and outer ring (all one piece)
from Tischer BMW-cheap pops right in. Part number 52206970744 $12.00 - in black. Order at: getHelp@getBMWparts.com Hope this helps.

My car had all missing. Didn't know there were caps until I saw another M3. Asked dealer and said to complain to selling dealer (different one). Bought them from Tischer and replaced them, along with the missing tools and missing flash light. Don't know what the hell happened to those caps; no evidence of them ever being installed. Weird.
