Default How to tighten jack pin nut on Journey OF660

My Journey has a come and go buzzing sound inside the body. It was driving me crazy trying to find where the buzz was coming from. I finally pressed my leg against the jack pin while plucking each string and the buzz stopped. As soon as I took the pressure off, the buzz was back. And I can rotate the pin by hand. This doesn't loosen or tighten the pin.I tried to reach the nut inside through the sound hole but I cant reach. Any suggestions how to get a wrench down in there? Any idea what size?

Got the cover off. I think I can now get a job as a contortionist. Pliers inside and out. Inside by feel and pliers held by just the last bit of the handle. That blue stuff on the treads isn't locktite is it?

Persistence! Good for you. Itís great to be able to do some repairs by oneself. Now post pics of the process or it didnít happen! j/k
