Well, who knew this was my lucky day, even a blind pig finds an acorn every now and then as one of my friends from the hills used to say!
While packing the box together, I noticed a paper inside. Who knew the car has opening hatches? Carefully opening them up, I found the weights in the middle of the car had broken loose- apparently a nylon spacer or shaft had broken and the spacer was still there, rattling around.Others were still solid- Atlas has three sets of these weights I found out,
With my trusty needle nose pliers, I fished the broken piece out and manipulated the weights back in place. After multiple applications of super glue gel, I replaced the broken part (with a lot of super glue) and am waiting for it to dry. The final touch will be strategic globs of GOOP.
