Gray part will not fit into black pieces labeled 1 and 2. Tried them all, doesn’t fit right. If I put the gray piece in the other end it fits, but that’s not how it’s supposed to go. It’s like the hole on the one side is too small... Help please?

I'm assuming all parts you have are not damaged as this is possible, but highly unlikely, event.

I've tried to connect both parts myself. And this piece

is indeed harder to push into desired location as pictured in step 1041. Unlike the same hole from the other side of the panel. I've encountered this myself quite a few times while building other models. If you check both ends of the hole on a panel you'll notice that one has outer ring, which helps centering the connector, unlike the spot in 1041 step. I find it just a little harder to center the piece, but eventually it goes in and feels like it supposed to be there.

You can use something to help you with a task, like a 3L Technic pin, which can be attached to connector to help with a task.

    @Livie I don't know if anyone other than me has ever seen your comment here, but if you actually ask another, separate question, it will get lots of attention.
