    TBH mate should slide in there easily, you sure you got it round the right way, get your nose in there with a torch the plastic moulding 1st & check you have it correctly positioned.

    Agree with NHN, It should just pop in, may sound stupid but have you checked it against the old one to check it's not bigger and they gave you the wrong one???
