    Please help with Breville Barista Express BES870SXL grinder assembly

    I have this machine for 5 years, and did not have any issues whatsoever until i decided to grind old Kopi luwak i had, as a result clutch on machine was gone. After the incident i was not able to adjust grind size. It was stuck at some level and adjusting grind fine from the side was not giving any result. So i opened it up to see what is going on, could not find any broken parts, but i can't put it back parts together now, please help.
    The problem is here is that i can get burr holder screw deep enough

    You have two options: 1. buy and replace the grinder assembly for $85 (https://www.ereplacementparts.com/gr...hamvt6dhdlks12); 2. If you don't plan to replace it ever, glue it back so it will still work.

    Ended up buying from ebay (can't post link due to low messages on this forum). Thank you for response.
