Trout window guards

I opened the front window guards to clean the windows and cannot get the drivers side guard to align with the screw holes. It closes fine , but the screw holes in the bracket fall short of the holes in the trailer body beside the glass. Any thoughts?
This should have been a very simple job, but dear Lord, why me!!!!😉

I've always noticed that the side rock guards take a bit of jockeying and that the locking screws are on a quarter turn cam system. I's one of those Airstream things that you'll get with a little practice.

You need to firmly take hold of the centre of the guard frame and the outer edge and place enough opposing pressure as to "straighten" the curve of the guard to the point that it lines up. They are finicky and it takes a bit of practice.

Realigning window guards

To make it a bit easier to re install the 1/4 turn screw that secures the guard once you have wrestled it back into position, take a razor knife and trim about 3/32" of the face of the black rubber bumper. Makes it a bunch easier to push in on screw and get it to latch with 1/4 turn. That fix came straight from the Technician at Jackson Center. I was having a devil of a time pushing in and turning at same time. He said he trims them all the time. After this fix, easy to secure. You still have to wrestle a bit to align, but then all is good. Hope this tip helps.
