Brake not fitting on rear tire Puch maxi

I was repairing a hole in my rear tire and when I went to put the wheel back on it fell and the brake doesn’t fit back into the wheel. I know next to nothing about mopeds or anything so any sort of help would be greatly appreciated.

Axle is bent or brake pads are misaligned would be my guess. Try gently wiggling the brake actuator arm back and forth while working the plate in

Move the lever and wiggled it in!

you should have marked the axles with a sharpie or scratch or straight up and down And put the axles in the exact same way because they’re usually bent a bit within a week of riding your moped and now the brakes are not gonna ride exactly where they were so The brake pads will need to be repaired so you may lose a little breaking power
