RG550RFR whammy bar question

Does anyone know, on an RG550 EDGE Bridge where you insert the whammy bar, there's actually a 'slot' somewhat to fit a screw driver to tighten or loosen some adjustments? Does anyone knows where can I find information to adjust that?

Mine seems to come loose and I wouldn't want to proceed to any manual work before any proper instructions is in order.

There is a nut on the bottom side of the trem socket that holds it, you will have to pop off your springs and lift the trem out of the body to access it.

Is it just the bar getting loose or the entire socket? The OP made it sound like it's just the bar. If that's the case- he would just need some new arm bushings.

NVM.... I just re-read it....... you were right, it sounds like the whole socket.

Yeah got it tightened with a 10mm wrench. Fits like a glove. Gotta love the edge bridge.
