Default Highlander center dash panel reattachment.

I recently replaced my factory installed 2002 Highlander radio with an
aftermarket one from Crutchfield. The installation of radio and it's
cradle went exactly to plan. I let some professional installers take
care of the door speakers, they did a good job as well.

I noticed that the center dash panel, which surrounds the heating
controls and radio unit, is no longer flush with the surrounding dash.
One side or both sides (left and/or right) protrudes about 1/2 inch from
adjacent surfaces. I don't think I did anything in error while removing

All eight clips (four up top around the hazard and passenger seat belt
lights, two below the center vents on the sides and two at the bottom
below the radio) that attach the back of the panel into their retaining
slots on the dash are intact.

How can I get this panel securely back in place so the clips hold? The
new radio install does not appear to be out of alignment or causing any
protrusion and I know I'm aligning the clips up with their respective
