ZR2 trem arm problem

I just got a S5470 with the Zr2 and I was playing it making sure everything worked fine I was removing the trem arm and a black plastic bushing came up under the adjustment cap. I had the cap unscrewed when I went to pull it out. I'm not sure what to do I didn't know if I could push it back in or fix it myself or if I should have it sent back. I used the search option but I couldn't find anything on this problem. The threads were usually on replacing the entire assembly or the actual holder breaking. Thanks for your help.

I wish Id have gotten any advice. I called musicians friend they had me send it back for an exchange. I thought id add an update. I believe it was the trem arm bushing I somehow managed to pull through the arm cap. Does anyone have expierience with this? id love to know what I didwtong to avoid it on the next one they send me. I apologise for typos using ps3 to post

Re: ZR2 trem arm problem

Hi,

the arm socket is made of 4 components:

1) Arm socket (with a nut)
2) Arm holder
3) Arm torque bush
4) Arm cap

The Arm torque bush is a small black plastic cylinder located under the cap
that fit with the arm socket. Its use is for keep the arm firmly on the
socket and for prevent "squeacking" noise because of metal parts stroke.
This torque bush is not fixed under the cap and it's removable and changeble.
So don't be afraid! The only thing to do is to place the torque bush on
the socket arm and then close it with the cap.
This picture can help you. You only have
to pay attention with the orientation of the bush. The small bump need to
be up for right fit of the cap and the arm.

Hope this was helpful for you.

Thumbs up Re: ZR2 trem arm problem

Thanks a lot that was very helpful. Sorry I'm pretty new to this, it is my first guitar with a trem so it's really complicated for me. Is the black torque bushing supposed to pop out everytime you take the bar out or am I loosening the cap to much?

Re: ZR2 trem arm problem

You loose the cap too much. It's not necessary lo loose it a lot,
only a turn or two are ok.
