The rectangular hole has rolled over edges, something is just not right and why the 2 unthreaded holes on each side?
Because there were two types used, a push-in and a bolt-on type (see AIM extract above).

I had to put a new one in my car and it is HARD to get in.

Follow what Bentley said for installation and it will go.  I sprayed mine real good with silicone spray, got one edge in as good as I could, and then used a big screwdriver and a hammer on the other edge to send it home.  It is more difficult to get it to pop in than you would expect.

Use dishsoap. That's what GM used.
Keep the silicone away from the car - it will screw up paint (new painting, not existing paint).

That is exactly the way mine is on my 11D (early 1969)  SS-RS convert.  Just forget about the holes on either side of the rectangular one you can't even see them with the bumper installed.

That is exactly what it looks like.
