    I had a simliar problem mate.

    I tried to to push mine back in one side at a time. Once it goes in at an angle is a ***** to get right.

    Try pushing it in equally from each side at the same time.

    Is your bumper off or are you try to fit it with the bumper back on. If on then its not an easy job.

    EDIT: I had to trim the taps slightly with a sharp knife so it fitted back together again nicely.

    Ok mate I will check with you tomorrow and see how your getting on.

    It will go back on but maybe something else is not quite right but in the light of day it may become obvious.

    Cheers

    put the large backing onto the bumper mounts. then slot the front upper section complete with V grill already attached to it onto the bumper, then finally the little chrome strip
