This part is extremely delicate if put in or if you try and force it on. You will break more than you fix. There is a definite trick and when you know it, the installation is (no pun) a snap. The trick is to place the small plastic in such a position that the only "snap' required for installation is on the heaviest and thickest port of the small part. Then carefully use the pliers to pinch only between the plastic covered bar and the heavy part of the plastic clip...blip, it goes right on. Try it any other way and you will break more than you can fix....
