Reinstalling VW Beetle trunk panel
I had to remove the trunk/hatch interior panel in order to replace the locking mechanism. For the life of me I can't get the panel back on. In what order do you try to install it. I've tried by attempting to line up the slots in the upper corners of the panel to the 2 panels along the side of the window where there are 2 "prongs" that go into the slots on each side. I can get one side but not the other. When I did manage to get them both in the top of the panel that lines up with he bottom of the window wasn't getting flush and would pop everything back out.
I also tried installing it from the bottom up. Lining up the lock mechanism and the "rubber stopper bolts" into their placement hokes and working up, but then it seem impossible to get those prongs in the upper corners lined up and into the slots.
What is the order to put this back in? I feel like this should be an easy job but I've worked on it for 2 hours without success.
