I noticed that the ferrules of the tuners of my 4003 come a bit loose. One site of each ferrule stands open (0,5-1mm) at the head's side and is flush on the nut's side.
So the ferrule is practically a bit slanted.
I tried to push them back in, but as soon as I tune the string it gets slanted again.

Why does this happen??? Is this common.....does your bass have this too?
Need I worry ????

Just a thought, check that the (big) screws on the string posts are tight.
If loose then when you put tension on the string it may be pulling the string post at an angle.
When you tighten the screw do it with the string loose.
