I have seen some of those ends at the parts store in the help sections labeled as Dorman parts.

Not sure how you'd couple the new to old..worth an internet search though.

Okay, I'll pop mine apart and tell you how I did it.

Well, That was simple enough.

I squeezed the two white tabs on the clip and pulled the connector off.

I turned the connector so I could see in there.

I put a dental pick between the o-ring and the connector and popped a little part of it inwards.

I pulled up on the little part I popped up.

I pulled the o-ring out.

Assembly was reverse.


You could do both o-rings that way pretty quickly.

Being a "non servicable" part.. I've seen these plastic retainers not want to go back together as well...I can understand that it may not come apart w/o being maimed .

I could see that happening. It was easy enough to pop mine apart, Maybe I have a slightly different style. Either way I wouldn't bother with removing the retainer.

Just the one. There'* no plastic washer or second o-ring. I'm slightly considering opening the other one next time I'm in the shop.

Popped the other one apart this morning, There were two o-rings in there. Interesting, But it still came apart with a dental pick.

Where would I get a new retainer ring. Mines tight in there and Im afraid I'd mess it and the o rings up getting them out, So If I go and pull it apart I'd like to have the retainer, both o-rings and the spacer on hand. Until then, the teflon tape is going 3 days without a drip

I doubt you could get the reatiner itself, I've never even heard of buying one. But, I know you can get the whole line for a pretty penny.
