can you release the compressor with the spring like that? if so, you need to grab a LOT more coils, and get it back in place.
the problem seems to be the rubber cap on top is not installed correctly.
if you lift the LCA with the jack, and can get the spring to recompress, you may be able to get the tool to grab more coils...
there's no magic with these things, if YOU don't line everything up, and get everything to seat as you release it, this can happen...
Thanks for collecting the posts.
Can you offer some advice on how to grab more coils? It was everything I could do to get those five. I mean, it took hours of maneuvering to get the center bolt lined up on the lowest coil I could.
