Hey man I had the same problem due to the fact that i just re covered my headliner. It's a def pain in the ass to get all the clips to catch. I am not condoning this, but all I did was break off the clips that weren't already broken and glued it. It looks rand new and no one knows it's glue but the people I have told and I. Other than that I would take it to the dealership and have them put it in that way if they break it, you get a new one.lol

beat it with a hammer. that usually will work quite well.

seriously though, just angle it in, and then seriouly apply pressure on the clips, working from the outside in.

When you replaced the switch, did you pull the panel dowb to take it off? If not, try to pull it down and install then...

i found that if you pop the interior light out and the put the pannel in and the pop the light back in its much easier. hte little clips are designed so the pannel goes in before the light..

it's kinda ghetto, but you can put velcro up there in case you have to pull it off in the future.......... the clips are a bitch-break 'em off.
