Trying to fix driver's door lock, 00 Civic

After I bought my HX, it became increasingly difficult to lock and unlock the door. One morning I went out to my car and the lock had moved away from the keyhole! I needed to unlock my car through the passenger's side!

Having finished school, I finally took apart my door, and thought that it was missing a retaining clip, so I ordered a new one, but there did not seem to be anything wrong with the one that I had. I keep watching this and other videos:

How To Install Replace Outside Door Handle 1996-2000 Honda Civic - YouTube

and looking at this diagram:

I just do not know what the problem is. The lock is supposed to be completely secured, but when I assemble everything, it pops right out!
