Default Brake light switch replacement -- what's the trick?

Hi all
Haven't been here in a while and it is good to see the same people are
still here.

My 95 Integra automatic yesterday started to have a problem with one
not being able to get the transmission out of park, even with the
brake pedal pressed. When I looked at it closely, I also found the
brake lights out. The horn still works (same breaker).
So after some fiddling around, got the old switch out and tried a new
switch by just plugging it on to the connector - brake lights work
again and the transmission wants to get out of park again.

My problem is: how does one get that connector back in? There must be
a trick to it. I can thread the switch back into the pedal mount but
the connector just does not want to go back in. It seems like the wire
to it is exactly long enough that it is ok once it is in but there's
not enough 'give' to bring it back up. There's also sheet metal and a
wire loom in the way. Of course, this is not the most comfortable
position to work in..

So what's the trick, if there's one? Does the whole pedal assembly
have to come out or something? I'm right now debating to just extend
the wires to that connector by soldering some new ones in between but
hate to mess with factory wiring.
