NOCTUA NH-D15 cpu cooler fan not clicking back in

Hello, I’m trying to install a NOCTUA NH-D15 into my pc. To screw it down onto my motherboard I had to remove one of the fans and I can’t get it back. I read the manual and it’s not clear what I have to do. Looking for suggestions thanks.

I believe you don't have the clips on the right way. Here's a picture of mine to give you an idea.

As @TukangKopimentioned, it looks like you are installing the fan backwards.

Make sure it it blowing air to the back of the case.

Check for fan direction arrows...
