Hi,
Just received a 2nd hand Ibanez S470 with ZR tremolo.
The action was a little high on the treble side, so I loosened the lock nut and wound the allen headed bolt in to lower the action.
This seemed to raise it!
So I wound it the other way.
The lock nut then fell off as there isn't enough thread showing for it.
This also raised the action!!
Now I am left with a gap at 12th fret of about 4mm, with no thread to place the lock nut on, and no matter which way I turn it the bridge is popping further out!
What am I doing wrong??

push the bridge back down on the post, if you unscrew the nut, the bridge is free to pup up, you should turn the allen key part of the post to raise and lower the action.

What screws are you turning? The ones at the bridge or the ones at the nut?
You can call me Aaron.

Oh - it seems it's not a locking nut but the adjustment nut is that right? About 7mm?
The thread for the nut to go on is way down in the hole now :/

Okay, panic over - the bridge just pushed back down and allowed me to get the nuts back on.
Phew!
