Top Storage Shelf Attachment Clip Replacement

The space from which to approach the spots for reinserting the clips was very narrow. The shelf needs to be in the "down" position and the fabric divider between the compartment and the trunk area needs to be unsnapped. Next, the spring-loaded ends of the shelf must be raised to get to the clip receivers. I'm sure the articulating "hinges" that snap onto the shelf ends will work OK without the clips if you can't get them back in. I just would not store anything heavy behind the seats on that shelf. Once that shelf gives way, the microswitch that allows top movement will not work as designed. Good luck!
