Thank you for the info! It seems that this method would really be preferable to the potential damage caused by the adjustment screw. I wonder why no one else seems to bring this up? (rhetorical question
Do you happen to know approximately what thickness of washer should be added that would equate to one turn on the adjustment screw? Also, are the washers a specific (read: strange, or MBZ specific) diameter, or can they be sourced from a typical auto parts or hardware store?
