    This little tip will restore your old clicker to loud and new order. After years of wear and use and abuse they can get weak.

    Simply remove the side plate opposite of the crank handle. Three screws.

    There is a white plastic gear on the spool axle. This is seen in the second picture. The fins toward the inside is what the spring steel clicker rides on to click.

    In the third picture you can see the steel flat copper color peice that rides this gear. Bend it gently toward the center of reel, just slightly, to snug it back into position. Dont move it much. 1/4" is more than enough to get it tight.

    This picture shows me bending the spring.

    Now when you go it put it back on, slide the clicker to the off position. You should be able to see this view, so the screw port is clear. With it on it will obstruct and after assembly it could have the spring on the wrong side of screw pole. Make sure its in the off position. The screw pole is what makes the spring move to the gear. Replace cover. Your clicker should be loud as a new one.
