While trying to change the strings for the first time since I bought a guitar with a floyd rose, I accidently loosened the bridge from the front (the front being the side where the pickups are visible). Me, being extremly impatient to fix my problem I removed the two screws holding the bridge in place in a hope that could somehow make something better.

I realize that I am about to get the flaming of a life time, but I REALLY need help.

Thanks

I dont think so.

Im trying to explain, its difficult.

The bridge (I think also called the 'saddle') has no screws holding it in place. Its still attached to my guitar because of a bar that runs through the body.

are no longer held on?

Nope not those! The thing the saddles are attached to, theres also a hole for my whammy bar in it.

I think its the bridge.

That would be the bridge I'm quite sure. If thats the case well... I'll let someone explain. I can't.
Add me or I will eat your kitty!

So wait, you took out the posts that the knife edges pivot on?
Take it to a guitar tech before you F*ck anything else up.

Open the rear trem cavity, loosen the springs off, then remount the bridge posts and bridge. String back up, get some tension back on the springs, then get the action dialled.

It'll take ages, but you'll learn something whilst you do it.

Also, be sure to mark (with a piece of tape) where the trem claw is at the moment. Then, you'll be able to return it to the correct position easily, taking most of the work out of the setting up. You'll already have it balanced, and will just have to adjust the pivot screws to set the action.
