Oil cooler return pipe from Oil Cooler Thermostat Housing With Thermostat

2008 535i. Anyone know how to replace Oil cooler return pipe and oil cooler pipe from Oil Cooler Thermostat Housing With Thermostat (connected to the oil filter housing)? Looks simple but not exactly sure how the pipes come out.

There is a Hex bolt under the housing that holds the pipes in place. Remove the hex bolt and the pipes slide out. Don't lose the orings that are on them, they fall out easily.

That sounds easy enough. Do you know if the top hoses are suppose to click into place (snug fit) Thermostat Housing. I may have bought the wrong parts but the top hose when connected to the thermostat housing is very loose and falls right off.

The oil cooler hoses are held by the bolt without the bolt they will fall out, there is 1 oring on each pipe that kind of hold it in place, but not much tension.
