    Pushing grommet back in

    Ive routed my power cable via the unused grommet for the accel cable.
    Problem is i just cant get it back in now as stupid as that might sound. The cable is through it and everything is working but i cant push it back in. Put vaseline round it to with no luck. Problem is i can only get to it with one hand its in such an annoying place.
    Any tips to get it back in place as i can hear whistling when im driving from it.

    What you need to do is put soap on it and push it back in place.

    that done the trick for me.....

    Thats not the only problem, one of the problems is the metal can be sharp and start to cut through the cables, not good!
