Dont know if this is the right place to post or at the Mustang section but

I was adjusting the intonation on my Mustang Bridge, I kept turning and the spring popped out from the saddle and screw and it won't screw back on with the same force it use to.

I went ahead and tried to see if I can figure out by doing the same thing on the saddle right next to see if something was missing that probably flew and the same thing happened.

I cant get the spring to apply the force it use to with the screw and the saddle. So if anyone knows how to fix this or if there is a special technique on doing this because I can't get the spring tighten again.

thank you

I had that issue with a Mustang bridge. I picked up new saddles with screws and springs and put those in to the bridge and got rid of the old ones. The screw wasn't grabbing in to the saddles like it should have with mine. New saddles with screws and springs worked great.
