My passenger side sideskirt came loose during an off road excursion. Anyway, I pulled it off and broke most of the clips in the process. I got all the necesarry clips from the local dealership, so I have everything I need, I just can't figure out how to get the darned thing back on! I put all the clips in along the side of the car. Is this correct? I figured the skirt would just slide on, rear first then the front piece. So far I'm very frustrated!!! Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
Fred

Did the screws come out too? Or have you already remove them? Well if not then take them out. First there should be to parts to the clips I think a black one and a grey one(not for sure though). Put the black part(the one that gets the other clip pushed into it, a female connector) into the side of car and the grey piece)male connector)into the side skirt. After that just push the side skirt back onto the car and then put the screws back into the bottom. I hope this helped.

That makes sense. But I just know I'm going to break the damn grey parts again trying to get them out of the black part! I'll give it a try. Thanks.

If you want but it will be harder and you take the risk of breaking the clip by putting the whole clip on the sideskirt and then pushingthem on.

Just had mine painted. the pins go in the skirt. you pop it onto the side, then attach the one funky plastic fastener on the front, and then the bolts along the underside.
