Oh, I broke my P180 case already?

I've installed my PC parts in the P180 case, but when it came to putting the sides back on... they weren't going on easy, but I checked the obvious things like I had them the right way around etc ;) And nothing was in the way... but no they should be fine I think, so I tried putting them on again but they both got stuck on the bottom clips and when I got them off the two black plastic clip bits on the bottom of the sides had almost snapped off... some of them have since finished snapping off.

The case still closes, but still... naturally I'm worried/confused. Did I do something horribly wrong? Did anyone else have troubles with this?

Do you think I should ask for replacement sides from Antec?

Thanks!

Wow, I didn't expect it to be such a common problem... it's a pity a note about this isn't added into the review.

Thanks for the search tip.
