Steering Wheel Re-Assembly

Good day to all.
I changed the turn signal switch and in haste took out the assembly before noting what the heck went where.
Main issue is getting the turn signal switch body to fit back in the hold that has the column gear selector.

There is a metal plate that I'm not sure is to go on first then the assembly is screwed on or if it is to be put together as a whole and turn and twisted on.

I can't get it to sit flush. Any thoughts? See picture.

Thank you and any help is always appreciated.
(I'm Canadian if you haven't noticed)

Yeah, this is a huge PITA. I've done this a couple times to replace garbage repop turn signal switches that always have the plastic bit that implements the cancel functionality break off. You have to install it with the plate attached, you just push in the entire assembly and turn clockwise. However, I've found it much easier to loosen those three screws by a lot in order to provide more "legroom". Once it's locked into place, tighten the screws back up. (There should be springs around the screws above the plate providing tension.)
