Evaporator core quick connect problem....

Just did the dreaded heater core replacement. While i hade it apart i changed all 5 blend doors and evaporator core. After i put it all back together I cannot get the one bigger line from the dryer to connect to the evaporator core. The smaller one clicked and locked just fine. Also i can connect the stubborn line to the old evap core just fine too but will not connect to the new one itjust will not lock in place..... any suggestions? I took a mic and measured the old one 0.84 and new one is 0.86 in diameter at the ferreled end.

When trying to slip something together .020" is certainly enough to keep it from fitting. I did this early this year and fortunately didn't have an issue.

I think I will head to autozone and but a new accumulator/drier alot easier than removing dash and changing evaporator again. Lol

Try a different dryer for sure most times it’s just the spring setup in them. Also keep the bracket off it so you can twist it side to side some that helps seat the spring then but bracket back on.
