    Jim,

    It’s helpful, but my issue is that the key lock socket is not matching up with the T30 hex bolt bracket. Seems to have been pushed back during install, somehow.

    I have set the key lock back in, but I cannot screw it back in. I’m going to try to reset the handle again and try to reinstall.
    My mirrors went on easy.

    Thoughts?

    Got it. I had to walk away for a day and read more posts/ understand the problem. The handle had pushed the bracket out of place. We are gtg now.

    :notsure:
    Something is not lined up, maybe something is not sitting straight. Maybe try a longer bolt just to pull it in then take that out and put the original bolt back in.
    Good luck. :fingerscrossed:
