e38 Dog Leg Drip Edge Replace

Thought that changing the C pillar Dogleg Drip-edge seal on my 740il would be easy. Came off properly, but when trying to fit the new one in, the pins are off from the grommet holes ever so slightly, and they don't have much lateral adjustment. If I snapped it in the way it wants to go, I get a noticeable gap between the dogleg and long roof drip rail. Any suggestions?

Does this tip from 2008 (found on e38.org) provide any insight?

And I thought I was the only one with this problem. Thank you QSilver7! Do you have the earlier thread that led up to it?
