Damn, I wish I could sit at my computer and smoke. Can't think without smoking.
thats what i understood.
take a break, have a smoke.
the rubber "bushing" from inside the socket stuck on the ceramic head of the plug, gotcha.
lube up the inside of the plug socket in your hand with some light oil, silcone spray, graphite, whatever will make it slippery, connect to whatever extensions you needed to get down there, wiggle the socket while pushing down, force it gently over that rubber p.o.s. till you can engage the hex corners at the base of the plug.
throw that rubber p.o.s. away and just be careful installing plugs without it
(future tip, get one of those cushioned snap-on plug sockets, you'll never buy another)
