Ok, the modifications I made are not really ohoto worthy. First off, I had to reattach the post on the back of the case. This was done with a combination of superglue and treadlock...solid now. The more important modification was to remove the little ratcheting nu that is incorporated into the removable clip itself. In order to do this, I had to pry open the clip just enough for the spring loaded 'catch' to fall out. There are two 'nubs' on this part, one latches into the center of the post itself and the smaller one pops into the indexing holes on the post. I feel that this is the one that caused my post to come loose in the first place as it is so tight that the phone, while in the case, cannot swivel freely and there is constant lateral pressure transferred to the post. Anyways, once I got that two nubbed part out of the clip, I simply cut off the one indexing nub with a razor knofe, reassembled the clip and presto, 360 degrees of free, smooth ratcheting-less swivel. I am confident that this case will now serve me well for quite a while.
