... sorry to hear that what I thought would work didn't ... 

One thing that comes to mind ... in fact it came to mind so quickly I wonder if this isn't what I actually did to fix the problem ... is to get a longer screw and add separate nuts underneath the crank mechanism ...

When I checked my car I just checked the top, I did not remove the cover underneath ... 

Did you look for wear on the drive gear?
