i did that, it's still quite hard to push it in, i had to try using a hammer and a piece of wood, it's not moving much. really stiff. with the screwdriver it when in but it requires to be opened a lot more to go in. i hope i don't screw things up.
also, the gap is about 1-2mm when i open the fork clamp. quite unnerving.
