Zoom in on the pause screen and inspect your position. Observe how the bump on the left side of the helmet is overlapping the door. If you are too far left, advance frames until you reach this point. Each frame will shift you about half a helmet’s width over. If you are too far right, abort and restart. If you are slightly off from this, your previous steps were off somehow.
