Dropped Ceiling problem

I need help! I had to take down some of the ceiling tiles in my coventional dropped ceiling after my dishwasher overflowed. I'm trying now to replace the ones that were wet, and the ones that I mutilated. I am having an extraordinarliy hard time getting the new ones in without breaking them. There is only about 4 inches (if that) of clearance between the frame and the bottom of the ductwork above it. We just bought this house and were not responsible for installing the ceiling. Any suggestions?

Are the panels the same as the old ones? Since there is limited clearance you may need to set the panels above the grid away from the duct work [where there is more clearance] and slide them over to where you need them. Sometimes you can move the metal a 1/8" or so and this may help also.
