hmm. i dont know what to say. ive never had a problem getting the pads in or putting it back on the disc.

maybe your piston is too far out and you need to push it back in?

That seems like a likely problem.

If the brake fluid is near the top of the range you may need to empty some of it...
or watch it carefully- not letting it overflow.

Get a C-clamp, center it & gently tighten... making sure the brake piston stays lined up square.
