Push it in straight? Reverse the angle used to pop it out? Put in one side first and pry the other side in?

This shouldn't be so complicated. I must not be doing something right, 'cause it isn't going back in.

1. clean your hands first if you have a white headliner.

2. make sure cones at end of spring actually can move and aren't frozen.

3. set in place

4. use the heel of your hand and pop hard.

5. curse loudly because your hand will hurt.

6. clean the marks you left on your headliner with those dirty hands :)

Insert the one side in first as you've described, apply a small amount of lithium grease on the other side which need to be pressed in and it will likely work. I remember putting up a terrific fight with mine and was really worried about wrecking it. I consulted a few '02 hands and was told to try the grease first. A small rubber mallet was at the ready, but actually the grease was all that was needed. Good luck.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
