I got the Bergville harness and everything connected, and the unit works very well, but I seem to be having trouble getting the bastard into the frame.

I've never had this much trouble with a head unit before, kind of baffled.
Wondering if maybe I lost a piece for fitment.

I took the metal collar off and slid the unit through the front, but the collar won't lock on the backside.
It's too big to fit into the hole in the frame with the metal collar on.

Any tips, or wtf did I miss?

FYI to anyone doing this, here is a link to the correct Bergville harness.
1999 Boxster 2.5l 5-spd. 168k miles and climbing.
