Replace a AE-Comp in Premiere-Timeline with an AE-Composition

Hey Guys, i have a quick Question to ask:

I have some Clips in my PP Timeline which i edited with After Effects through "Replace with After Effects Comp..".
But as soon if i want to edit some Transitions between these Compositions and some other regular Clips in After Effects again, i get in trouble because AE just won't load the previous Composition - i only get a test card.

Is there any workaround or is this just not the way its ment to work and i should change up my workflow?

I'm not really understanding your question: Are you having trouble when editing inside of the After Effects comp? I'm going to respond with a vague answer either way: Replace with after effects comp, creates a dynamic link, which will link directly back to that specific sequence in AE: essentially, it treats that sequence like a video file. As long as you don't change the name or location of the AE project, it should stay there. Is it possible that After Effects can't find a clip in that sequence? If so, you'll just need to relink them in AE. If that wasn't the answer you needed, could you show pictures?
