when the system drrrrrrags in transit, loosen the clamp, turn the mount for immediate silence
Better to give no instructions at all than ones like the above, which are garbled, inaccurate, and suggest radical procedures (hammer and file) to a novice.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
