Edge zero bar rattle

I just picked up an RG3570z in a trade.
I have owned several edge and lo-pro bridge guitars, but never an edge zero.
I saw in a video that the bar tension is controlled by the thumb nut around the bar.
I have that tight but the bar still has play and it clicks when I use it for a chord vibrato.
Are there any bushings that I can replace like on the bar for the edge/lo-pro?
Any other solutions?
Thank you in advance.

Yes, there is a bushing under the torque cap to eliminate rotational play. But there will always be a little lateral play in all pop in bars. A wrap of scotch tape on the bar over the detent should remove most if not all of it.
