    Try a smidge of silicone grease or washing up liquid.

    Fit the 2 shortest beads first & then fit the 2 longest beads by locating both corners & working your way to the centre.

    Is it single leg bead or shuffle bead?

    Single (as the name implies) has one bit of plastic that needs to fit in a groove, the shuffle has an 'L' shape that needs to fit between two points, ans is much harder to get in.

    I've found your post later on about the beads being external, did you remove any wedge gasket from inside?
