Hence more info (and caveat):
Wrenching ONLY when COLD and retorquing with the indicated 8 Nm value.
Meaning tight
but not like some frenzied neanderthal on steroÔds.

Otherwise you'll kill the brass insert!
It will turn in the thin plastic wall of the tank and your screw will be useless.

And getting a new one might take a long time nowaday.
Absolutely this, but I know mine wasn't done up gorilla tight, it just seized with either a bit of corrosion or the heat cycles.

In better news, the replacement tank was supplied in a week from the factory, this was last week.
