The center rings of the set are not going all the way in, they are too tight, how do I get them all the way if, is there a trick? Do they have to go all the way in? The old ones seem to be.
the cover is plastic, so I don't want to hit it too hard and brake it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

It is recommended to use a tube seal installer when putting the seals back in. This will help them go into the slot.

See picture below.
