This is normal. And not as bad as you say :-)
I was constrained by the dimensions... the necessary relative positions of the LCD and the rotary controls just left very little room for that bolt and its plastic spacers; nevertheless they are necessary. That's why it is all a bit of a tight squeeze. But it DOES all fit!
These little white plastic nuts are quite susceptible to the application of unreasonable brutality, just a little violence also known as the application of unreasonable torque to the black screw in each corner of the LCD module, will bring those plastic nuts into line. If you wish you can make the job quite a lot easier by drilling out the thread of the 7mm spacer and one set of 4 nuts (NOT all of them!) using a 3mm or 1/8th inch drill bit. This makes them slide on to the screw more easily and move a bit more so that they easily fit into that tight space by the rotary encoder at the bottom right corner of the LCD module.
Patience and persistance will win the day. No retreat, no surrender.
