    Default ARF Sea Dweller V2 loose bezel

    Does anyone have a solution to tighten up bezel clicks? Besides dental floss or fishing line!

    It can have 4 springs with ballbearing attached, change the springs


    If it has the above spring, you can bend it a little or get a new one on Ebay

    It’s the new redline sea-dweller with the ceramic insert it uses springs. Where would I source the them?

    No link for springs just the flat washer and click spring for classic style sub. I’ll check the bay.

    I have had several of these on my bench now, all with springy bezels, there's not much you can do other than shave a tiny amount off the lower circumference of the crystal retainer.

    Buy new springs!
    I bought some with more tension, now the bezel is more tighten and click is much better.
    You must cut them to right dimensions.
    They where bought here.

    Default ARF Sea Dweller V2 loose bezel

    How long did it take to receive them? I’m CONUS.

    What did you use to cut the springs?

    Springy bezels? My bezel sits nice and tight on case, no gap. I just need tighter turn and clicks. It moves with slightest pressure.

    Yes, springy as in the bezels are sitting too proud of the mid-case, and rather than butcher/cut/trim the springs, I lower the retainer so it not only brings the bezel flash with the case, it also removes the springy up and down feel of the bezel.

    Ok I get it. This wouldn’t help my bezel. There’s no up down play at all. It fits flush to the midcase.

    Really don't know, maybe you get similar in the US.
    I took a small side cutter to trim the springs.

    Thanks to my friend @Tribal ! I received springs from him and followed his instructions. My ARF SD43 now has very nice sound and clicks very close to gen.

    But how do you attach the ball bearings to the new springs?

    I've actually just noticed that my ARF SD43 v2 has a slight case of this, can you elaborate how you lower the retainer as I'd really like to fix this myself if possible. Many thanks!!!
