It bends more at the ends, less in the middle.
I’ve sighted it looking for bent parts but found none. I’ve adjusted it so that it has equal grip.
Body shop friend said a lot of them do that.
Almost seems like it doesn’t bend as much where most of the bending was done suggesting something is worn out - maybe the sliding hinge . The track for the wire could be worn. If that was the case, a solution might be to “wear” the ends. Acid anyone?
