If the instructions are still backwards, then you may have a problem...
The flat flange of the bracket with 2 holes goes toward the FRONT of the car...there are 2 screws on the bottom of the cluster that attach it to the dash panel and one of the holes is used for that screw(it can't really go the other way)...and the single hole end is the end that attaches the bezel to the bracket(with the supplied screws)...get it?

it seems the included screws do not fit through that small end (of the metal bracket) at least with what i got today...and the fitment/quality is ****ty. I would have bought an a-pillar if I had known!

Relax, man.....I have installed a couple and a friend installed his and we didn't have any problems with any of them being 'bad'...they take a bit of fitting, but they DO fit.
Sometimes a bit of finesse is required, rather than a hammer.

I didn't install the brackets either, poor design and it fit fine without them.

You dont happen to have a pic do you? Is it noticeable that its no longer there? I imagine its purpose is to keep dust out. I thought about just removing it and gluing it on but I have a feeling it wont stand up to the test of time.

Unless you drive with the wheel tilted all the way(or most the way anyway) down, you won't even know it isn't there....
