    I found that it is easier to put the 4 10mm bolts on first, not fully tighten, then the two 13mm bolts, most of the way, then tighten the lot.

    In essence, like most things, don't tighten all bolts until all are in and partially tightened. You need the slack to maneuver everything into place.

    BTW, I did mine this morning.
