Any grit or dirt in the mechanism? 

Just pulled a new one out of the box, there is a small amount of side-to-side play in the ear when it is in the closed position.

You might have the tension/cast control cap set to tight. Loosen the cap half way which will allow the spool shaft to move to the right and this should give you room to fully close the side cover. You could also have some grit or something around the side cover or locking tabs. check to make sure that's all clean. Put the lock dial in the open position. shut the cover and wiggle it in place. If you have the above options done, it should be a good fit and you can then lock the dial.

Press the spool release thumb bar before trying to close everything up, makes aligning the pinion and spool much easier.  Otherwise, its the spool tension issue, though I doubt you tightened that up in between opening and closing the side plate.

Just read the post above, press the thumbar - this releases the spool from the pinion, which is where you're getting hung up - and insert the spool, and close the palm side plate.

As far as weights go, its item eight, under service in the FAQs: http://fish.shimano.com/publish/content/global_fish/en/us/index/customer_service0/FAQ.html
