on your extreme left side under the dash

Could any of you tell me where to buy the 2 hood release latches that are on the extreme left and right side inside or behind the grille of a 1984 500 SEC. DO ANY OF YOU HAVE EVER BOUGHT ANY and if so, where, what is the exact name of the item or reference as to where to get a hold of at least the left one when looking at the grille from the fron. Desperate for some help
