    The original PTFE tube I got with my E3D Lite6 just barely fits inside the heatsink.
    I originally just pushed the tube in holding back the collet until it didn't move any more.

    Later I had to disassemble the hot end and noticed that the tube was noch flush with the nozzle, but stuck about 10mm above it. So with a lot of force I was able to get it flush and then cut of the excess that was sticking out in front.
    As it turns out now my tube was to short.

    So I ordered PTFE tube with an outer diameter of 4mm.
    But I've been unable to get that to fully enter the heatsink.

    I've tried heating up the heat break and cooling the tube, but it just wont fit.
    Any suggestions

    Thanks for the help.
