E-mail is always the quickest way to reach us. If we are near a computer, e-mail gets checked first, bimmer.org is about tenth on the list. You got my personal reply almost an hour before this post, right?

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 ??

: Jeff
