So I changed my filter,,, easy as expected,,, the lid was tight coming out but came out but now I cant for the life of me get it to go back in. Way too tight on each side,, I ram, jam, and cram and still wont go,,,, any suggestions ?? thanks rj

Is it too narrow for the lid to fit on? Did heat warp the box, perhaps?
