      Hi bert, the inlet fits in the same was as the video above, but rather than a clamp holding it in to place, the cover acts as the clamp.

      I had the same problem and the only solution is to replace the inlet pipe. However I have discovered that the original pipe is no longer available. I have botched the fitting with silicon tape which minimises the leak.

  • Q I'm having trouble fitting this part can you offer any advise, it is the right part just cant seem to seperate the black inner part from the metal 1 Answer

      It is a tight fit,and as a result pulled of more from the assembly than I would have liked. To remove the plastic from the metal nose piece, support the metal part and apply firm pressure to the the outlet pipe and the whole thing should pop out. On reassembly watch out for the little plunger that's operated by the on off switch,it has to go on top of the reciever.
