Hi,
I've took the chrome pipes off, and I can't get the rubber parts back in.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks

Plonk the rubbers into some boiling water for 10 minutes, so they go slightly softer. Use a lot of washing up liquid on the inside of the rubber when you're instering your chrome intake pipe. They'll just slide in smoooothly with that extra lubrication ;)


You won't get bubbles out of the exhaust... :lol:

Once you get the rubbers in place you'll have fun with the hose clips :mad:

I had to use a large wrench to clip them back together - mainly you need all the force. Sounds rough but done carefully it worked perfectly.
