Default Bosch MRF23EVS E-Clip

The e-clip on the Bosch MRF23EVS that holds the above the table adjustment rod keeps popping off, and I lose the ability to make height adjustments to the router. I have been trying to use 3/16" e-clips. I measure 13/32 with my caliper. No one in the area has that size. The diagrams on the parts list for the router does not show the size of the e-clip or even the rod. Does anyone know the correct size for this e-clip? Any suggestions?

call Bosch CS and talk to them.. they are some good people and they will help you...
that clip is in millimeters... what ever it may be...

for some reason I think you either tried to adjust past the stops or didn't unlock the holding clamp 1st and you have bigger issues than a E clip that won't stay put...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Default E-Clip

I evidently went beyond the range of the adjustment and popped the clip. The clamp was open.

I've done it twice on my 1617--after the second time i taped a pair of spares near. Haven't done it since.

I replaced the e-clip with a 1/4" shaft collar. It fits perfectly and appears to be more stable than the e-clip. The router has the full range of adjustment.
