My E500's hood star broke off. I got a new one, removed the old one in about five seconds, as is typical. Went to put in the new one, and I can't get the revolving clip mechanism to turn at all. I've done all but clamp it in a vise to get it to move, but it won't move more than an 1/8". I feel kind of silly because it's well, a hood star, and I've replaced at least three on my various cars in the past without this issue. It's a brand new out of the box OEM hood star from MBOEMParts in Naperville.
Am I missing something? Or did the part change somehow?
