380 sl: I have 1981 380sl with the loose moulding that fits

Customer Question

I have 1981 380sl with the loose moulding that fits just below the door threshold. I bought the new clips but can't get the male end to lock into female clip that sits into the holes on the body. What can I do to reattach.

I have both ends screwed in just inside the tire well, as they should be, but when I go to push the moulding against the body to lock into clip, it won't catch and continues to hang from the screwed ends.
