Rear camera won't fit in new back housing

The back on my iPhone 8 was cracked so I replaced the housing. I’m trying to put the rear camera into the bracket but it won’t go in. It seems like it’s a bit too narrow on one of the corners. I’m trying to bend the frame of the bracket but I don’t want to stress it too much with the fear of breaking another back housing!

Any suggestions?

**Edit** I’ve added a picture that shows the original bracket from the broken back housing compared to the bracket in the new aftermarket housing. There is a discernible difference in the shape of the bottom corner that is stopping the camera from sitting in it.

Soluzione Prescelta

Is this an original housing replacement housing (for example, pulled from a defective device) or is this an aftermarket one? Some aftermarket housings have poor tolerances which can cause this kind of issue. Don’t torque the rear-housing too much because you will crack the glass and then have no recourse with the supplier.

Inspect the opening and compare it to your original housing. If you have a digital caliper, take some measurements to see if there is truly a difference or not.

It’s an aftermarket replacement that was never used. It appears that the bracket is definitely a different shape on the bottom right corner. I’ve attached a picture - in the picture you will see the original bracket from the broken housing (snapped it off after transferring all the contents over) sitting on top of the new one. The original looks to have an extra gap in the lower right corner of the rear camera bracket, whereas the new one is flush. I've added an image to the original post that shows this.
