Hi all,
I am putting my door panels on and have run into an issue that someone must have solved already. When I put on the butyl tape for the moisture barrier, I may have used too thick material or didn't get it in the right place because my door clips will not click in. Anyone else have this issue? I am thinking I could put a spacer between the door and the clip retainer, but can't find any plastic space era. Any one have this issue before?
I can get some pictures later today.

I need to add back the moisture barriers on mine, where did you source the material for yours? From what I can tell, the OEM style has cutouts for each clip.

How far away are the clips from the catch point?

I used marine shrink wrap. It came off a new boat that was shrink wrapped. Heavy duty stuff. Then used 1/4” 3M windo-weld butyl tape. In retrospect, maybe a thinner bead and more careful placement might have been the ticket, but it took two days to clean the old 💩off. Hoping a spacer behind the cup will do the trick. Can’t tell how far away from clicking in I am.

Acousti Seal - which comes in a tube works pretty well as a door vapour barrier adhesive. Not sure about the world - but in Canada most building centres stock it. Home Depot Etc.
