I had the same thing. Tightening the clutch cable which is behind the left rear wheel fixed it.

You do not need tons of the 3M glue. Best to use it where needed, not just everywhere. That way years from now when time to replace seals again the job will not be a huge mess.

Just put the tube back in and use a center punch around the hole to crimp it back in. Can also do a poor mans knurl on the tube end to go back into the hole.
