    Default USE GM clips when re-attaching the inner door panels.

    Hello, all.

    I wanted to share something for once instead of asking another question.

    Over the years I have taken door panels off of various vehicles and never had luck getting them to go back on. I have tried different sizes of clips with no luck. I finally figured out that once you take the door panel off you need to remove the whole clip, the part on the panel and the plug on the door, and reinsert with new clips designed for your specific vehicle.

    I may have been the only person in the country with this ignorance; but my doors are put together finally!

    I am having that issue too.......after repeated access to the "inner workings" on the doors, it seems that all the clips are broken....I have the interior tool to remove them but they were broken when I bought this thing. Where can you get a quantity of these with out payin an arm and and a leg for them?

    I bought a bag full of them online a while back; I would have to look as to where. How many do you need? If you just want 10 or 12 or so then we may be able to talk offline.

    I will make sure I have as many left as I think and will get back to you.
