Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes the white clip won't push back up to lock the bulkhead connector sleeve
Expert:  roy replied 1 year ago.
can you move the clip freely while not on the connector.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can wiggle it but won't push up even with the connector sleeve out
Expert:  roy replied 1 year ago.
the plastic tends to jam in the rotator pins. try lubing the clip and freeing it up Roy
