    HELP!! Can't figure out how to repair my Griot's Garage DA

    Hey everyone.
    I have a Griot's Garage DA that I've had for a while. Been a great product.
    Today I noticed that my pad was all over the place while buffing. I stopped the buffer and when I grab the backing plate. it wobbles from side to side.
    Took the backing plate off and the spindle nut wobbles and is not tight in the bearing.
    The bearing is moving fine. It's as if the nut needs to be tightened but I can't figure out how to do so.
    This is probably one of those obvious things but I'm crazy frustrated.

    Thanks in advance!!

    IF you guys bought them from AG call them First!!!!!! They will take care of you.

    If you bought from somewhere else then contacting Groits is in order.

    Mine did this. The spindle bearing was wiped. Got a new one within a week. UPS picked up the old one when they delivered the new one.
