Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your patience and input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes and have a question before we proceed. does the bolt seem to be all the way in? Take that bolt out and check the threads for metal fillings and tell me what you see.
