The line shouldn't be difficult .. it's just to reduce the coolant evaporation by reducing the excess gap. I'm able to split mine out with some simple fidgeting.

I'm not sure what you mean by white spot.


I would not recommend a glue gun.
If you want to be fancy you can get a rubber grommet .. find the right diameter and fit it in there ..

just measure the diameter of the tube and buy a rubber grommet at whatever hardware store of your choice
