OEM I/C Hotside Hose Seal Install

Taking intercooler back to OEM for sale,
Found this hotside (green) oring seal broken similiar to the picture below.

Sourced a replacement and ill be damned if i can get the OEM hose back into the intercooler to click into place with the clip with the oring on the hose.

Am i missing something here? its about 2-3cms off from goign straight in to where it sits sealed.
If i take the oring off, it fits perfect instantly.
Id rather not do the dodge and leave the seal off.....
Any tips / pointers??

OEM I/C Hotside Hose Seal Install

I did something similar. I wrapped electrical tape around the threads and used a drop of lube. Slid down into place no problem. Then unwound the tape.
