Im trying to raise my action on my Schecter Stiletto Elite 5, and I raised all of the strings successfully, but my D string wont raise!
Is there a way to solve this problem?

Its wont turn any way, as if the tool im using is too small.

Loosen the d string and see if that helps, Maybe usesome wd 40 to loosen it up, if its got sort of rusted close.

Before I raised the action I loosened the strings...
wd 40? I have a only bigger allen keys and they dont fit.

Wd 40 is a liquid, you spray it on, gunged up joints(not quite the right thing but its the best way i can describe it), it loosens evreything up.

Are you sure it wont ruin the bridge? and should I remove the strings before I spray it on?
#10
Yes you should taker off the whole bridge of the bass.
It might not work, are you sure your turning it left.

Take of the whole bridge? I can just use a straw to guide the spray into the right hole...
And it dosent matter which way I turn it dosent do a thing.
#12
WEll give it a try then.

Where you using a good quality allen key?
If it was a crappy one it might have worn down. Maybe that is why it is spinning in the screw?

is it the same allen wrench you used for all of the other strings?
i assume so...maybe the socket is stripped or something, but try taking the strings off first if you haven't just so there's as little resistance as possible
also try both metric and US standard allen wrenches

Its a new allen key that comes with new warwicks so I assume it should be fine.
It is the same allen key I used for the other strings.
If none works Ill just take it to a shop here and see if they can do it (its a bloody new bass and its the first time Im changing the bloody action!)

If the Allen key is new and works with the other saddles, its possible that the D-string has duff saddles whose sockets are soft or whose mechanisms are pranged. Drop some BadAss in there while you're replacing the bridge!
