    No matter how careful I am, I always seem to break the little pop in "Christmas tree" fasteners. In some of my older cars they are not easy to replace. Maybe there is a secret I am not aware of, but I have had to get in there quite a bit and I dont want to keep making it worse.

    There are tools to help do it. Almost like a two pronged fork. Damage to the fasteners seems unavoidable at times. I think the best thing is to have spares for the ones that can be replaced.

    A loose door panel can drive me crazy.
