Quick question about loose tubes

Post by MetallicaFreak65 » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:01 pm

I noticed the other day when i was putting tubes in that some of the tubes came out easy and some of them took alot of force also some of the tubes dont move when you touch them but some wobble around when you touch them.
what does this mean?

If the tubes are in all the way, they shouldn't be loose at all. Sounds like the bases are worn or damaged :(
