NGD..got a problem lol (pics inside)

Ok, so I just got this Squier Vintage Modified Mustang and I decided to take all the strings off...

Well, it looks like I'm gonna have a hard ass time getting them back on because this bridge piece (I don't know what it's called) is pressed all the way down on the side where the B and E strings go...Also, it's so hard to even get the Low E string on. What did I do wrong??

EDIT In case you're wondering, I removed the string saddles.

If I recall its either spring loaded OR you can just raise it using the two screw on the top of the bar.

Isn't that the bar you slide the strings through? The bridge is a little further up.

Hang on a second; If the strings won't fit, how did you get the old strings out to begin with?

The tailpiece bar is springloaded, if you had changed one string at a time no problem. Push the bar towards the neck, get low E on & tune to pitch, the angle will change & give more clearance, repeat with remaining strings
