Inner door sill - what's the trick?

This morning dropping her off at school, my daughter accidentally pulled up the inner sill/kick panel on the passenger side. What's the trick for re-attaching? I can get the front two, or the back two, but not both.Click image for larger version

you need to remove the clips from the floor, then slide them back on the trim piece and then install it. I usually take a needle nose pliers and get under the clip and squeeze in the clip to remove. Sometimes they break and you'll need to get new ones.

They work like the clips on the door panels except they don't come out easy like the door panels.

Perfect! Thank you. 90degree needle nose pliers worked perfectly to pry the clips.
