The dunk it in hot water and apply washing up liquid suggestion worked for me, with a teaspoon handle to push it in (did it in the kitchen!). Dry it off before you put the washing up liquid on, or it gets messy :159: .

Why didn't they just install it to begin with.  It would safe a lot of frustration on the consumers part.

I replaced the fluid with swearing and cursing....

Always a good alternative to lube  :015:

After some needed input from the trusty forum, I succeeded in seating mine. Dish soap and needle nose pliers worked for me. Just lube the rubber bumper well and drag the knob through the hole a bit at a time with your pliers from the top. Don't use so much force as to tear the rubber, but rather tease it through like mounting a tire with irons, a bit at a time. It worked for me..

BTW: Amazon sells a handy tool to get your spring on. It costs $11.00,  is made by Powerbilt, and it works great. The part# is 648411. It is called Drum Brake Return Spring Tool. It doesn't take much room in the tool box either.

So we talked about that rubber thingy going into that bracket thingy and so far no one has posted any pictures yet.   
And how about that Spring that is hard but not as hard as the rubber thing part. ?    Pictures are worth a 1000 words  :015:

there are utube videos on how to do the spring with a screwdriver which is super easy, not z900rs specific but works just the same.
