Hi all,
Got a little problem here. I haven't cleaned my Badger 150 for a while and all the paint dried in it. While trying to clean it I accidentally pushed the teflon bearing out. Is there any way I can get it back in there? I'm sure I can but I don't know where exactly its supposed to sit (any specific area, or do I just jam it in there?). Is there some sort of diagram anywhere that can help me with this?
i know that Badger does free replacements, but I would prefer not to have to send it all the way back to them if I don't have to.

Do you mean the teflon collor on the spray head? If you do just place it on the thread of the head and screw it back into place.

No it's not like an O-Ring, it's more like a little tube that goes into the main body of the brush. Part number 50-046 in the manual.

As its available as a spare part i would suggest buying a new one as it only 4 in the UK which is $8 so it's not an expensive part. If the one thats come out is not damaged just re-insert it using some soapy water as an easing agent if needed, by sopy water i mean washing up liquid just run some fresh water though it to clear all traces of the soap after re-assemby.

Thanks alot Daren that's what i wanted to know. The bearing seems undamaged. I'm not sure if theres anyplace around here which sells spares and I'm not ordering a new one online unless it's completely destroyed. I knew how to put it in just wasn't sure how far in to put it.
Appreciate the help
