Default T25 Thermostat sender replacement

Need to replace a thermostat sender on a 1986 T25 1.9 pertrol. I have the round boded type. I have removed the old sender and bought a new one, but i can not for the life of me get the new one fitted. The sender with new o ring (old one has been removed) pushed in ok, but the clip that holds it in place will not go back in.....is there and art to re fitting the sender??

Default sender

Are you using the old original clip which is metal and goes rusty or the new flat plastic clip, i would think you havent quite pushed the sender in enough, the clip will slide in, if its in enough(sender) you are using the wrong holes to enter the clip in, ie, turn the clip a bit (clockwise/anticlockwise).
can be fidly with water running down your arm.
