Back panel will not slide back on?

I followed the guides within here to take apart my iPhone 4. And made sure to follow and remember every screw I took out, etc. My question is, whenever I go back to slide the back cover back on...it will not fully slide down into position for the two holes to screw it in place...it seems to be "stuck"... any ideas?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

you need to put a little bit of force, and check out the outter frame that it is aligned with the housing as u slide it on. :)

This has happened to me a lot and i have found that the reason being, for me at least, is that i forget to make sure the 6 side screws (with washers) aren't tighten all the way. After i retighten those it fits like a charm!
