VTS box cover
I was checking the trim wiring on my son-in-laws 95 xp and am having trouble getting the cover back in place.
Is there any trick to getting the VTS cover back on the box. I tried squeezing with slip joint pliers very gently but could not get it seated fully. I don't want to mark the cover up or do any damage.
Thanks to all.

Here is what works for me. Take the rubber gasket off completely, check it out and make sure it's not cut or marred in any way. Then put it back on and make sure it is pushed down uniformly on the base. I sometimes put a little dish detergent as a lubricant on the rubber gasket or oil will work but very lightly. Then get your wrists ready for some torque. If you have to use a channel lock or some tool it means something is not lined up or the rubber gasket is wrecked.

I have found that aerosol dielectric grease works very well for lubing the rubber gaskets on all the electrical boxes in my doo. It should not degrade the rubber like oil, and will not wash off like soap.
