I just took the deck of my 2018 1025R in order to check the underside of the deck and lube the arbors on the deck. I have 31 hours on the machine. After disconnecting the deck I got under the machine and noticed that the bearing in the auto connect mechanism had slid out of the housing . The bearing and the coupler appear to be undamaged but I am a little concerned. Has anyone else had this problem?
Looks like this bering should be retained in the housing by some means.
