Default Issue with camshaft locking tool

I am attempting to replace my timing belt and the intake cam phaser. Trouble is, with the engine at TDC and everything else lined up, the slots on the camshafts are not aligned properly. The intake camshaft is just ever so slightly off so that the tool won't fit (maybe because of the bad phaser?). Any ideas on how to get it to work?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Unless another Astra owner can reply with personal experiences to help you, subscribing to alldata or Mitchell may be the way to go for exact procedures instead of guessing. You can always try other sites for advice from techs ready to help.
