Check the lighter grey bracket again to see if the holes line up. The orientation is correct in the second picture of the bracket (below). The two tabs with holes screw to the trunk right at the edge of the "pocket". It feels like the third tab might screw to the bottom of the pocket.
The dust cover goes on after everything is installed and connected. It should just slip over it.
Can you take a picture for us? Thanks!
