Happened again yesterday! I noticed that after tightening the clamp using a ratchet, it would rotate with just finger pressure against the worm screw barrel. After the third tightening the clamp would no longer rotate from finger pressure.
My guess is that the teeth are somewhat damaged by age, and thermal cycling (or DIY repairs) which is the cause of the repeated loosening.
I ordered both the SAAB part and what I believe is the ABA equivalent. The description by eEuro for the ABA part is dismally lacking in details.
