    I was always lead to believe that Vaseline would damage Latex.
    All those wasted opportunities when I was young........

    It does! Latex is natural rubber and Vaseline makes it swell and weaken and tear...

    I tried for about an hour no go.
    The bolts are tight too.
    The car goes in on Wednesday I`ll have to leave it for them.
    God I`m pissed off should have been about an 1HR job with removing the catch can and putting new part in and catch can back on.

    Good call, I stand corrected,
    Thinking about it, I have never used Vaseline, where there was always either soap or oil available.
