Question Replaced Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR)

I just "replaced/installed" a new fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR) on my E30, however I am not sure if I installed it "correctly".

When removing, I had to tug/yank it out in which it "popped out".

Since I could not "push/pop" it back in using just my hands, I decided to slowly nudge it in using the two 10mm bolts, alternativng between the two until it could not go any further.

The thing is, I "think" it is installed. Since I did not feel and/or hear the pop while fastening the bolts down, I am not sure if it is installed correctly.

Note: The FPR does seem to be "lined" up correctly.

Anyone have any experiencing with installing/replacing their FPR?
I don't want to fire up the engine and set it on fire with fuel leaking out, etc.

Comments/Suggustions? Please advise.
