Digitizer is higher than metal bezel after replacing back cover.

After I replaced the back cover, the digitizer assembly doesn't sit flat with the metal bezel. I can see it is higher on one end, by the headphone jack. Would any Pro have the answers for this problem, please. Thank you.

I didn't get a chance to thank you, Pollytinto, for the answer. But my problem was not of the above. I know the two tabs have to fit into the notches. I just want to add here what I found is that: Since I replaced the back cover, I also changed the headphone flex cable and the ring for the headphone jack. They were aftermarket parts and they didn't fit properly and therefore pushing the screen up higher. After I tried a different ring from another seller and put back the original flex cable, everything was OK.

Hopefully, this will give more help to those who experience the same issue.

Thank you again Pollytinto.

There are 2 notches in the bezel that the screen sits into. Take a look at the display frame at the headphone end and you'll see the tabs that match the notches. So... Open the display and close by putting headphone jack end in notches first. Don't forget to power off first, don't want the next question to be " no backlight"
