Recline Handle Install

I have found a couple of threads that describe how to remove the front seat recline handle, but I cannot find anything that describes an easy way to reinstall the clip since space is very limited. Thanks.

I have no experience with this, but here goes.... Do you install the clip into the slot on the recline handle, and then just push the assembly onto the shaft?? The clip should stretch over the shaft and remain in place until it clicks into the groove in the shaft. Just a guess.

Here's a link for a similar (I think) window crank: https://axleaddict.com/auto-repair/R...le-on-Car-Door

There are a few YouTube videos also of window crank removal/installation.
