As you noted, the mechanic did not install the washers so you are having a lot of force applied by the spring clip. You need to have those washer/spacers installed ASAP as they are stepped - releasing the outer race of the bearing (and the lever) from the compression force.

: hate to post it like this but you seem to respond quicker on the message boards.
: well i checked my little goodie bag and I still have two aluminum washers sitting in my ziplock with the superlube. is this whats causing my problem ?? is it big deal ?
: if it is, i have a bigger issue, my mechanic read the instructions (i had to print them off your site) and i just went through them and no where in the instructions for either the kit or ERK does it mention aluminum washers ! Now i'm going to have a tough time going back to him telling him he installed it wrong when he didn't put them in because the instructions don't include the washers.
: What do I do ??
