I had a look at the manual and it seems pretty straightforward. Where are you having trouble?

Zero stops merely place something in the way so the turret can't go down any further.

It says to push down on the zero stop to put in place but no amount of pushing is going move it. I did read on a other site about resetting zero stop first and then setting it, tried that but it still doesn’t work FYI it’s a first gen scope

Might want to email Bushnell direct then.
I've seen videos of DiY zero stop mods that simply involve drilling and tapping a hole in the top of the turret knob and screwing in a grub screw so it bottoms out, preventing the turret from going any lower. I really don't see why more manufacturers don't put it into their cheaper scopes.
