Question about installing chrome step pad surround on WK2

So I am replacing my step pad surround due to putting a nice ding in my current one. I received the part and 2 of the plastic clips are snapped off. Will this prevent the surround from fitting securely or does the step pad actually hold the surround in place adequately enough? I just dont want to bother returning it if it wouldnt be a big deal. Thanks for any help!

Re: Question about installing chrome step pad surround on WK2

How does this plate and surround come off? I want to take my chrome surround off and either buy the blackopsauto carbon fiber one or have mine painted to remove the chrome.

Re: Question about installing chrome step pad surround on WK2

I ended up installing it anyway despite it missing a couple clips (it ended up being a free part). I don't think there will be a problem as the black pad will prevent it from being able to slide out.

It is really easy to install. Just use a flat head screw driver and gently pry up the black pad. You will see the plastic clips coming up and you can just push in on them until they completely pop out. Once the black pad is sitting up off the chrome surround, the surround can be pulled out easily.

Slide in your new surround and then push the black pad clips back into there slots. Done!
