    Hello,
    I had a leak in the shower faucet, so I took the cartridge out, replaced the rubber and springs and now trying to put it back.
    But it won't fit back. I have twisted and pushed with enough force, but it just won't go in all the way.
    It was a little hard to take it out as well, but I didn't think it would be this hard to put it back.

    Any idea? see pictures

    Sometimes plumbers grease on the O-rings and cleaning out the holes at the back. Be careful though that you don't damage the brass body.
