PCV Corrugated Hose Help Please

6776 5
Good evening. Tonight, I decided to pull off my PCV corrugated hose to see if my check valve still exists. It does, however I stupidly can't figure out how to reinstall the corrugated hose. When I took it off, a rubber o ring and plastic washer came out. I have tried to put them back in, but can't get the hose to seat low enough to put the metal clip back on. Anybody know what order or how these pieces get reinstalled? Right now I just put the hose back on and put the clip on without the rubber o ring or plastic washer. Thanks.

I had the same problem and I didn't get it seated correctly the first time. When I realized it wasn't seated correctly, I tried again. I put some fresh oil on the o-ring then put it in the hose in the correct spot. Then, I put the plastic washer below the o-ring in the hose. Then I put some fresh oil on the manifold and pushed the hose back on. The oil helped and it slipped on fairly easily.

I know this is an old post but wanted to add this in case anybody went thru the struggle I did. I followed the suggestions in post #2 with oiling everything including the o-ring. Still could not get the hose to "click" on to the manifold port. I covered the end of the hose with a rag and lightly tapped it into place with a hammer. That got it to seat properly.
