VCT leaking again!!!

I just bit the bullet and bought a new VCT sensor about a month ago because my old one was leaking oil through the electrical connector, and it appears my new one is going down the same path.

I have no idea what else to do here, I don't wanna trash another $300 sensor. Anybody have an idea of why this is happening?

(Please don't mind my ghetto clip lol, I lost the oem clip while replacing)

How long ago did you buy the sensor, parts usually carry a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty from Ford.

Did you tap the sensor in with anything?
