Car is my dad's 2004 VW Beetle- attemping to replace the coolant tempeture sensor- comes out pretty easily, removed wire conection and then plastic retaining C clip and pulling sensor out like a plug- Now I can not get new sensor to seat the last quarter inch needed to get the plastic C clip over the ridges on the sensor-
Is there some trick or tool needed to get the sensor to seat? I tried forcing it by hand but no luck- still a quarter inch too high-
(Haynes repair manual on order but need help now)
Thanks in advance for any information.
