    Is there some special trick to getting the lower hose back on?

    I've tried dunking it in hot water and applying washing up liquid and I still can only get it half way on.

    Isnt it a plastic quick release fitting?

    All the rad hoses i've ever seen on VAGs are these plastic fittings. I just give the O-Rings a little squirt of WD40 and they usually slide right on!
