Hey Old Mechanic! Thanks for looking at this!

By George, I think I've got it!

I ordered a new clip, thinking "All of this work over a two-dollar part!"

The clip was still there and I took everything inside last night, trying to puzzle it out when we had a bit of an emergency last night. Everything is fine now, but that was an unavoidable distraction. When I put the pieces together, they were steadfast and immovable, until I tried assembling them in my car, then the lock cylinder kept falling out!

However...

Removing the clip and inserting it last seems to work! I can lock my door [normally] for the first time in months!

Thanks so much! Have a great day!
