    I had a little bit of trouble with this one clip that is on the sail panel and rear door sail or door garnish panel. What happens is you pull off the panels and there are little white clips shaped like a V with wings. That's the best way I can describe them. The clip stays in the door mostly in my experience. The issue is half the time when you go to push the panel back in place the clip gets pressed farther in and falls in to the door where I couldn't find it especially on the front.
    The clips are $5 each at the dealership or here $10 and change for 20

    What I figured out after loosing a few in to the Abyss is that you need to take them out of the door and put them on the back of the sail/garnish panel.
    Do this by squeezing the edges that stick out carefully between you finger nails, tweezers or needle nose pliers, pull straight out, then snap it on to the back of the panel. You will see where it goes.
    I wish this detail was in the Crutchfield instructions but it's not.

    Hopefully this tip helps some one.
