    Do you mean that they don't secure into position across the top correctly?

    There are about 6 metal clips that hold the top close to the door, if the cards have worn than you will need replacement clips

    Any chance you can post up some pictures to show more clearly what it is you are trying to explain please

    You must have the clips, they are fitted to the door

    If you don't have the clips then the old ones would have been the same

    There's a metal strip that runs along the top of the door card which those clips clip into that is missing from the door cards

    I need one for my drivers door too

    Thanks Button Below, Be a Sport...
