    Some will tell you it is possible, but I was not able to do it without removing the VTS. It is much easier to remove the VTS and it will go in easy. You can make your own tool with a piece of PVC. Just heat it and mold to the shape of the nut and let cool. You can also purchase a tool from the hardware store, used for removing the retainer nut on stems, it will be in the plumbing section.

    Thank you, will try finding a vts tool today.

    What is the problem with removing the vts without tool is it just that it wont release?

    or will it fall apart?

    is there no risk the vts will lose its position when removing it?

    Dont know. its a red pipe.

    But i live in Sweden...

    The vts tool is just a deep socket that allows you to get onto the nut.

    copied from another post

    1-1/4" or 1-1/2" PVC, melt the end with torch and then push onto the nut and let solidify. it will take the shape of the nut and for all intents and purposes become a makeshift socket.

    they're not on with alot of torque and come off fairly easily. plus if the PVC is long you don't have to remove any part of the VTS box....not even the cover, it will come out complete. " http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/atta...9&d=1265501426

    PVC-pipe worked fine!

    I also used a hose clamp in the front of the pipe to make it stronger
