ugh door panel clips. Hate 'em. Pulled them all, and put velco in it'* place. Much easier. Velco is kinda expensive though.. so don't be surprised when it'* like $10/yd. I really have no clue how much I paid for it, but I remember getting it on sale.

It works out great, because the velco isn't the support. It'* the [for me, three] screws which bolt the panel to the door frame. Hell, I went several weeks without any clips, and just the screws. Nothing wrong with that either, but you can usually tell the door is clipless when you open it, because there is a gap between the door and the frame on the bottom.

Velco huh? I might consider velcro some day, but Advance has the clips cheap.

the clips are much better that a velcro alternative, the 92-99 door panel is much different than the 87-91

I have had my door off at least 5 times now and i have not relpced the plastic clips yet, and have no problems or squeaks
