Be sure its turned the correct position and do not force it and be sure it is the same as the original sensor removed from it. look down in there to be sure nothing slipped in there blocking it.

Thank you, What's happening is if I put new o-ring on old sensor the clip goes in but not with new sensor they look the same. Going to go back to parts store an check part(sensor).

May be a little different the wide lip above the o'ring but below the clip slot if its the same, may just need to put a little more on it, but try no to break it but if the brass above o'ring is the same spec. Maybe turn it back and forth.
