As far as the 360 clip ( V shaped spring steel clip ) goes if that'* what you're referring to, you'll have to remove it from the nylon nut on the door trim panel with needle nose pliers, then install the 360 clip in the nylon nut down into the grooves on the inner door panel. Now you can get the door trim panel in place, make up the electrical connector, start at the bottom when re-installing the door trim panel. That 360 clip will then lock into the nylon nut on the inner door panel. Also make sure the top of the trim panel is seated into the strip at the window. Pull on the armrest, there should be no give there. Hope this helps a little. It'* alright to vent, believe me, I know what it'* like. I've messed with these lousy water deflectors many times on my rig.
