It took my Windshield guy a while to get it in as well.  He was really 
sweating.  He was originally using a mixture of water and chalk as a 
lubricant.  He could not get it in with this combo.  He started again and 
this time used WD-40.  He was eventually able to get it to sit in place.  He 
started on the passenger side.
