The plastic trim around the door just on the hinge side has seperated from the metal clips. How do I get these clips re-attached to the plastic trim?

You can try removing the panel and glue the clips back on, but you will break several more off just trying to get it removed (experience talking). Your best bet would be to replace the trim (AP4341018) as the new version has a different style clip that actually allows the trim to be removed without damage. If you do try and remove it, take the top panel off (screws along the top rear) and you can get your hands to many of the clips and squeeze them as you pull the trim away from the front panel. Enlist some help, because as you pull, the the clips already removed will start scratching the panel.

Thank you TechnicianBrian. You are right, I can see how the clips broke away from the plastic. Thanks for the part number.
