    help with leica lens aperture click??

    I recently partially disassembled my leica R summilux 80 1.4 in an effort to change the mount, however now the lens aperture ring is declicked and rotates smoothly as opposed to in steps with the aperture. how do i return the lens to its previous state where it clicks in steps?
    thanks

    I'm not familiar with that particular lens but I know with the 'R' mount lenses there's a little ball bearing that's needed for the click. Sounds like you lost it when taking the lens apart. I don't know if its the exact ball you need but I know http://www.leitax.com/ sells them for 'R' mount lenses.
