2006 G6 - driver seat recline handle

The original handle for reclining the driver's seat broke. I purchased a replacement. The replacement will clip onto the shaft, but when lifted, it simply spins on the shaft. Is there a part that is missing? I have attached two pictures. It is as if the shaft is a rectangle and the receiving portion of the new handle is a circle that is unable to grasp the shaft. The new handle looks materially similar to the original handle.

I cannot see yours too clearly, but mine has a spline shaft that mates with the handle to keep it from rotating freely. I seem to remember having to line it up and give it a firm thump for the clip to locate and the splines to engage. Perhaps it is not on all the way?
