The repair really wasn't that difficult but I want to share my own experiences to figure out the repair. I'm a novice at DIY repair and I had to study the situation carefully for quite a while before I learned how to do the clip replacement. My first challenge was that the order sheet that came with the bags containing the clips said it was for the "lower rack." The clips I was replacing were on the upper rack so I was a bit put off at first. Also the broken clips were missing parts of the clip so I was initially challenged to determine if I had ordered the correct clip since I couldn't match the new clip with a broken one. My biggest challenge was that I couldn't figure out how the clip was attached to the two different tines on the upper rack. At first it seemed impossible for the clip to be installed getting the tines into the proper parts of the clip. The trick was that the plastic clip could be bent a little bit so I was able to force it into one of the tines and then bend it slightly so it would grip the other tine. Once I figured that out with the first clip, replacing the second clip was a snap.
