My tremolo bar....

M whammy bar is loose. No, no the washers, it's not the actual whammy bar, it's the hole that holds it in there. You see, when I turn it, the socket turns with it. Is there any way to fix this? It's kinda hard to explain.

There should be a nut behind it, take the trem cover off you can just get it with a box spanner, you may need a big screwdriver in the slot around where your bar goes to stop it spinning while you do this.

I would avoid the screwdriver, it can carve up the slot. A box wrench should be fine by itself.
