If you can see the tweak with your eyeballs you tweaked too much
The connectors are called 'self docking' so if you feel ANY resistance going in STOP, remove and check you are not bending the pins over. New plugs are available from the dealer, $11 or $17 for two, PIA splicing though.
Then put some dielectric grease on the female side. This will keep oxidation to a minimum. Come to think of it I use dielectric grease on every connector I ever take apart.
