Wink

i don't know how i can help on this one

wrong type of panel, maybe?

if it's the right one, ... lack of patience?

normally you would start by fitting the panel starting at the top(at the weatherstrip) and working your way downward... maybe ask an assistant to help you hold the latch in open position while u fit the panel in place... or a combination of those

+1 on the door damage, i just replaced my drivers side door because the handle wouldn't stay in.

there are two screws on the back of the door panel that hold it in...some how mine got really messed up and wouldn't hold anymore.

i think that could be it with yours as well...

i had to get a new door panel.

good luck!
