Today I went out to the rear hatch and no worky worky. I can't say how frustrating that was or what happened next, but in the end I was able to zip tie hack it till I get the proper plastic clip on order.
I decided to grab the camera to bring you alone to share the journey together with you. Also below is the helpful resource link to a great forum called ih8mud.com
