Default FMX 1969 Filter spring clip problem

first post here.
It sounds simple maybe but not so obvious to me about the oil filter placement. I have a FMX C9Z and when I took of the oil pan the filter came with and dropped in the pan.
After cleaning the filter trying to put it back but something is strange about the clip at the end. It could be that the clip is just bend.
the c shaped part looks like it should go all the way over the edge from the filter but another pin next to it is preventing that. That pin should it be against the filter outside or under the edge? That pin is taller than the c part.

Thanks regards
