    Was the clutch assembly replaced? (or the old one removed and re-installed?) The disc needs to be lined up before tightening the pressure plate , that is usually done with a special 'line-up' tool.If the disc and splines are not lined up , it won't go in , no matter how hard you try.

    No we didn't mess with the clutch assembly,it had been replaced within the last year.We're pretty sure it didn't move.
