    I know there was a thread within a thread about installing the footwell panels, but I can't find it. Driver and passenger side, the lower connection will clip in, and the nut and stud is a no brainer, but I can't get the middle to engage the clip right behind the metal tab with wires grounded to it. Both sides won't engage, just spent an hour per side and they won't go.

    Any tricks?

    PLEASE, this is driving me insane ! :censored::censored::censored::censored::censored:

    Is the white clip actually installed on the panel? Most of the time they come out of the panel and remain in the body hole when the panel is removed.

    Make sure there is nobody around. My frustration and language as a result of seeing how easy it actually is was not for all ears. Stupid clips.

    OH the expletives were flying yesterday ! If it works out as easy as you say, I will cry tears of joy, rather than swearing in ecstasy! ;)

    Yep. The clip slides into a slot on the panel and pops into the hole on the body.
