I had my car worked on by a body shop that was comfortable leaving the harness open like this.

The 2nd is my attempt, but its not seated accordingly. The first picture is how they gave me the car.

You should be able to push most of in with your fingers, but you might need a plastic knife or something similar to stuff the last bit in. Some soapy around the lip may help slip it in.
Compare to the other side to see how it looks. Alternatively, take it back to repair shop and ask them to fix their mistake.

Good idea. Ill see if i can do it in the garage. I would go back to the shop, but dealing with them was such a nightmare. Considering how frequent they lied to me and thr lack of professional integrity, I'm not even sure I feel comfortable with them doing it

As @engineered stated you should be able to pop it back on. The trick would be to first put it back on the far side then use a tool to pull it over the near side. Here is a set of tools (surprisingly on sale right now) that would help, the one on the far right would be what is needed.
