Have you compared the thickness (height) of the plastic that juts out at the foot of the new battery with that of the old. When I changed mine I noticed that it had a removable plastic fitting that reduced the thickness of the foot and which enabled the battery to fit.

Actually the battery fits well.

Just no idea how to mount the plate holder on the top. The rectangular hole seems too tiny to swallow the side holders, or only at one angle and then impossible to fit the other one.

In the video, it doesn't show how to clip unclip that plate... it's all stock. Just me who doesn't understand. If someone can film how to... I would be grateful!
