Hello! Just thought I'd share my knowledge of these balanced lids. If you have one that is squeaky or too tight, take a size 15 hex key and use a ratchet to adjust the nuts on the spring brackets. Loosen about a quarter turn and try again. Continue until the lid is to your liking. If it's too loose, follow the same procedure but instead tighten it. Hope this helps someone!

No problem! It seems to be a seldom-discussed aspect of repair, and since mine was so tight I figured it out myself. Thought I'd spare people in the future :lol:.
