you have to watch that white plastic ring, it's a tight fit. the new slave i put on has a metal slip ring either one you might have to a screw driver apply pressure on it. Be sure to bench bleed your clutch master cylinder.

try opening your bleeder valve and pushing the valve in to relive the pressure then try to put the line in. what slave do you have? the new updated clip style or the old "finger" style.? i was having problems with the clip and i was able to remove the white collar and the line poped right in and worked great after that.

I just replaced mine a few months ago. The replacement slave was the new clip style. I had trouble getting it to attach as well. I took the clip out and slowly grinded down the clip till it finally attached. If you have the clip style you can do that, just don't take too much material off the clip. It always seems like nothing is easy anymore. Good luck, let us know how you make out.
