Allright, Ill continue writing it up later when I get home. I did not have to remove the metal sheet, its a must to have small hands though. Onto the plastic clips, they are for the rods, mine didnt look too bad and it was getting late in the day, so I just re-used the old ones, I didnt crack any so I think I am good, even though the manual and the instructions state to replace them.
One thing though, the ones that have the safety catch on them, look more like an L shape, make sure you connect them that they snap into place. I didn snap one in I guess and heard a rattling, then the next day the key wouldnt work, the lock rod finally fell out, so I had to rip apart the door panel again to snap that peice back in.
