Just noticed this after the arm made some noise after operating.

The pin that's supposed to give the arm socket some resistance, is broken.

Anybody know how to fix this? Had this problem before?


Thanks for any replies.

Yes the spring.

Tiffen contacted me the same day after reading the post. They will send a new one.


Thanks

as a G-70 owner should I be concerned about this also? Did Tiffen say this happens often?

My spring snapped after 5 years of of heavy use.....used rubber bands for 3 months until I got a spare ordered :-) Changed it earlier this year.
As the others say, watch out when you tighten the spring...its a bitch.

Just noticed the other day that my IIIA arm also needs the spring replaced. Last time it was in for service was over 3 years ago.
