Good luck.
    It's completely out now. I'll likely need a needle nose pliers to hold it in place. What a PITA!

    I can't get it back. I'll have to go to the dealer.

    Sorry man....didn't mean to cause you problems....that trick really did it for me....I took a look again last night after your post and like you said there is some play with that thing...took some effort to get it back in place but it eventually got it back in....I guess I had better luck.......it closes completely flush now.
