Default Mirror Cover - Attachment Clips

The little springy thingies that hold the mirror cover on, three on each side.

Has anyone ever changed one of these with the plastic still attached to the bike?

Is the nut "captured"?

I had one break a tab.
Before I dash in a unscrew the screw holding the clip it would be nice to know if the next sound I hear is the nut seeking it's permanent resting place in the deep, dark land all the stuff you drop heads.
I can't get a finger in to hold a un-captured nut.
I'm not going to be real impressed with removing the plastic to replace a simple springy thingy.

Only semi related.
I know that through the 2007 model year these springy thingies did not come with the hose clamp clip.
Anyone with a 2008 or later model.
What year did they appear?
