    Sometimes the wire spring has a U bent into it to clear the valve. On other types the valve has to be between the spring and the trim.

    Ta for that
    I've tried putting cutout u bend in different places and it's not fitting as it should at all
    Normally u get it lined up give it a thump with your palm and snap it's on
    But not these , all 4 are the same.
    May give Autotrail a bell on Monday
    Regards Alonsos
