I am not so sure the tube belongs under the 2 top metal clips, (I think the photos of the OP showed them pushed under the clips and zip tied)?? Both my sides (as looks like the OP photos does) had black tape that was holding the tubes lower than the clips because there is a rectangular plastic bottom under the torque screw (look at the underneath photo of the pillar cover) that needs clearance from the tube. My passenger side tube was a bit too close and got squeezed (from the factory- my first time taking the pillar cover off).

Just my 2 cents......
