Installing Headlamp Fixtures

The quality of recent key nail sliding doors have not been great. The black plastic moulding is not as good as the original.  I've noticed that when the door is closed, it does not align properly.  

To remedy this, I make a small cut in the plastic, here, to allow the door to close fully.



Make your cut at an angle, matching the angle of the chrome base.

To install switchboards, have a friend hold a pair of chopsticks to press down on the spring and washer. 


This makes it easier for you to get in there and push the switch board into its final position. Bend each tab with a soft drift slightly, bending each further slowly until the board is held firmly in position. Do not bend the tabs more than you need to.
