Hi guys, sorry if there is already a thread on this, I'm a nooby who lacks time!

recently i took off my 318ci door panels off since they had several clips broken,
bought some from ebay, and now the front bottom part keeps on snapping off and rattles a lot while driving (pissing me).

I recon there are 2 sizes of clips from realoem. 16 clips + 6 clips of a different part no. = 22 (11 clips on each panel = 22).

do someone know the location of these "different" clips?

I have some e36 left-over clips from my old ti. recon I can try those, but would wanna hear your opinion before i start crackin more clips :bump:

cheers folks :thumbsup:

I'm confused. You found the clips in RealOEM, but there is nothing to show you which holes the clips go into?

The clips are shown as Item X and Item Y (whatever), and the QTY column says that you need 6 of one and 5 of the other, and the index points to the different places. Not all of the different places, but you will see that one type goes in a relative location, and another type goes is a different relative location, and you should be able to tell by the locations which type of clip goes into the remaining holes.

yes those are the clips i have bought (incl, washers), still it popps out :facepalm:

Clip with sealing ring NATUR 16 51418224768
Clip with sealing ring GRAU 6 51418224781

those are the results i got from realoem. and as i searched ebay, the two different part nos are of different length.

could you kindly supply me with the url link to where you found the 6 clips and 5 of the other type please? the 1 I found was 16 of a type, and 6 of another, which means 8 and 3 per door card.

ok so I tried the different clips, placed 2 of em where the card kept on popping out, still popping as i close the door. maybe the card itself is no good?:banghead:

Guess I should opt to the window foam sealer option then...

cheers guys :bow:

It means something is not seated properly. the clips I posted above are the correct ones. Did you put back the 3x T25 screws? they bolt to plastic so be careful how much you torque them

Yeah, so look to see if something is between the card or try some different clips or jesus why am I holding your hand for something so basic? Do you really need help to snap a damn door card back in place properly?
