Culligan AC-30 tubing leak at manifold after filter replacement

Attachment 92475

Had a Culligan tech replace all but the RO membrane on my AC-30 RO system. Now there is a very slow leak where the tubing goes into the manifold (see attached picture). I have tried pushing the tubing in several times, no change, still leaking. Any suggestions? Is there an o-ring there that I need to change? I have not pulled the tubing out to inspect yet. I have a phone call into the Culligan office here but they're not super responsive...

Thanks in advance for any help.

You should be able to pull the connector out so you can remove the tubing. Then reset it.

Hopefully that will fix the leak

To disconnect the connector, hold the collar against the fitting body and pull the tube from the fitting. To assemble.. lubricate the tubing end with water and push the tubing into the connector until it bottoms out. Be sure the tubing is smooth and free of abrasions, otherwise a leak may result.
