ok well my strat has 3 single coils and i changed the pickguard today. Everythign went smooth but now the pickups are loose. I know the screws on the pickups are spring loaded and determine the pickup height. I returned the pickups to actual height (to the best of my ability) and they still make a tone and work BUT! Theyre loose. If i turn the guitar over the screws and pickups pop out and fall till they hit the strigns which stop them. I know what your thinking, tighten them, however, when i begin to tighten them any further they raise, to the point of hitting the strings. What can i do?

make sure the springs are in between the bottom of the pickguard and the top of the little tab on the pickup. that way, the springs hold it down. they are there for a reason you know... lol

you might have to use a soldering iron and put of solder on it on the back.

that would require to take the whole thing out.
