Very often dirt & muck gets under these seals. It might be worth cleaning the inner of the seal and also the surface then try again. Bit of washing up liquid on the metal surface to aid the rubber slipping on could help. Edited by PeeWee

How do you mean can't refit? does it seem too long or does it no re fit into the gap?

Its very tight, been advised to use soapy water,had a little go tonight seems to be working .

Thanks :thumb:

 

high tension fishing cord trick not appropriate here?
