So, any reason the door needs 2? I have to be honest- it opens and closes really easily with just 1...

That was it. It took me 3, I think, baby turns before the bubbles stopped. wmtire told me to be pretty cautious and not overzealous about it. I drove on it tonight and will check pressure in the morning.

Dang. You think a little contact cement will hold it? After you find the cause of course.

I was thinking some super glue and just pressing t down.

The screw was loose, just laying under the edge of the slide. I just don't know where it came from initially.
