Push the tube in straight with a back and forth twisting motion. If it won't go in all the way, place a screwdriver on the edge of the bracket and tap it the rest of the way in.

A couple of good sources for O rings are: McMaster-Carr, and Grainger.

McMaster you'll have to buy online, Grainger has stores in some cities. Use the web.

Prices will blow auto parts stores away.
