I accidently broke one clip off, stopped to ponder and came up with a what i think is a nice solution:
I went on and broke off the other clip. By doing so, i managed to create an clear path between both logic board screws to the right and left of the ram. then i went and found a thin plastic piece, which i cut to the correct rectangle size and drilled a couple of holes, one on each side.
I then seated the ram in, pushed it down with the plastic rectangle, and screwed in the logic board screws to firmly hold the ram from jumping out.
I DID have to use the longer fan screws since the originals in those places were too short for the added plastic width.
I used the shorter screw on the fan instead.
It works… and it’s pretty easy to do with a simple ruler, exacto knife, and a heated nail… (or more sophisticated tools if you have them).
