    afraid you need to take it off and refit, maybe theres some grit or your missing a rubber seal not done it myself but just common sense mate.... when i done my downpipe i nearly forgot the gasket!-)

    The seal is dislodged or pinched. Remove it, dry the seal, put some grease on it and it'll stick to the stat allowing you to do it up without it moving around.
