if it wont go on the pipes are probably not quite home, try brake grease, as it shouldn't make the seals swell up.

Cheers Mei, a massive help. Put the o rings in first, little bit of lube on the pipes, job done!

Back flushed as well and not a lot of crap came out. Good news.

I've often found you need to replace the O rings once they've been apart or you will get a slight weap somewhere. But yes always use a but of lube putting anything with rubber seals back on. We generally use a light smearing of plumbers silicone grease at work.

Thanks Pete. I will replaced the o rings when it all finally goes back together for good.

Flushed it yesterday, was all pretty clean, which confirms what one of the previous owners told me about the matrix being replaced. One less nasty job to do, just need to clean up the footwell vents.

Hi All,

Apologies for resurecting an old thread. I'm in the process of this, the final piece of the puzzle.

I feel like I'm losing my mind. I just can't seem to get these to seat. Even when i place the O rings in the female side when i start to place the connector in they deform and start to poke themselves out.

I've tried to lube all surfaces and just seems to make things worse.

Is anyone able to give me some extra tips, or is there a specific order i should be doing this in?

Okay, well i think its on as good as its going to get.

I ended up drying the rings as well the female side as much as i could, and put the rings in the femail side first as mentioned above. Then i lubed up th male side only and it worked... pretty much.

its in there and the metal clip is NEARLY home, but i struggled to push it in any further so hoping that when i get it warm and things expand a little i might be able to get the last mm sorted

anyway i started it and it didn't leak so thats a plus i suppose, i only hop i haven't somehow pushed the O rings through into the matrix or mangled them as a part of this process.

Crazy

When I swapped the 2.0 8v for an RFS engine in my phase 1 XSi, I also had to change the heater matrix pipes. We thought we did well, but now the o-ring is also poking out a bit. Luckily, the whole circuit is still closed... What I was told is that as soon as you do not push the male part straight into the female part, the o-ring will never stay put.
