I’ve fixed my oil in the plenum problem but now need to get the plenum reinstalled. Any suggestions for how to get the seals/clamps in place? So far I’ve have:

- put bottoms of clamps in first

- lube the seals with wd40

- pull the seals around the plenum to make sure they seat


But I’m having difficulty getting the seals on, especially the backs. Should I put the seals on the plenum first or the intake? How to make sure the back is seated?


Sorry my first time putting it back and can’t find any videos to show the process.

I put it back on over the weekend. A couple more tips than above:
- put the seals on the intakes
- make sure to put the backs/bottoms of the seals in the right position. I pulled the fronts a bit wider to give more room to get the plenum in
- connect the rear electrics/hoses then get the seals back in the right place since they’ll have moved.
- put the bottom clamps in first and align them with the bottom of the seals.

With these I managed to get them seated fairly easily.
