My front master cylinder rubber seal needed to be replaced so I bought a new one. When I went to install the new one I realized that I had to pull out that inspection glass. Now I can't seem to get it back in. Any tricks on getting that sucker back in there?
Thanks

You have to put the glass through the gasket whole first. Then put it through the mounting plate's whole. Keep the gasket at the narrowest point on the glass shaft and wiggle the sucker in. Kind of pinch the gasket so that you get one side of it in, then (with a thin blunt object like a small spoon) work the rest of it in from the under side of the mounting place. Be careful not to puncture the gasket while your doing this. Good luck.
