For a 4 door vehicle 26 of these clips are required.  Just FYI

Great!  I bought 30 pcs, but I don't intend to replace everything right now .. just fix the pieces that are loose.

That clip may need some shaving. But it might just be the difference from folded metal round corner. Or molded sharp corner.

Me too. I just need it for the doors and want to see the results before going further. Moreover I have a wild mixture of trim clips left by the previous owner. The others work. Only the moldings on the door are coming lose.

To close the loop. They work great for me, without modification or shaving. And they can be replaced from the outside -- beautiful! Thank you all for the pointer!!
