Cannot figure out step 41


I acquired the Galant filing unit (with a single drop-file drawer), and I cannot for the life of me figure out step 41 in the assembly instructions - the top drawer's back plate has two cavities for the rails to hook into, but doing so pushes the drawer out and cannot be closed anymore.

The only alternative I have found so far is to place the drawer further back to bypass the hooks, but then the drawer rests against nothing and is not stable (but can be closed completely).

Thanks for any pointers..
