Desperate to find a retaining clip for the retractable luggage/cargo cover... happy to buy a pair.

To be clear, it's one of these:

I don't know for sure, but I fear others may say it's only available with a complete luggage blind.

However, looking it, it's just a bit of folded metal, painted black. Even I could probably make that with a vice and a file.

I bought one of the clips available on eBay... a close copy (but not exact) and certainly does the job, but they are bare metal much brighter than the photo which might bother some people, and you will need to file some sharp corners down. If I was real fussy I'd want to paint the one I bought so it matches the original, but then I'd also have to paint the bare metal rivets on the roller after I drilled the others out to get it apart...
