Take the top of the case in with you. The impeller shaft is ceramic and if you didn't have it lined up with the hole in the impeller cover when you snapped it back in there's a good chance you broke it. If that's the case a new shaft isn't expensive at all.

well i guess you'll never know unless you try,i really
don't know if they would help you or not,might depend on what kind of mood they're in. lol
did you clean the impeller and the hole it sits in,because sometimes when it gets all the gunk
on it, it makes it slip,i would try and get a new one,rather than buy a whole new filter.

Thanks!

Thanks everyone! The filter is fixed! I drove a ways today to a LFS that I know has very knowledgeable people. I took the top of the case with me (thanks Mr. Fishy) and pulled out the long stick and the short stick and they knew right away that it was broken. How? There is only supposed to be one 2.5" stick! Not a 2" stick and a .5" stick. What a dumbass I am. So at some point during cleaning/reassembly I broke that sucker. The LFS had the exact stick ($13), and they replaced it for me. Just came home - works great! Thanks again! This forum is the best! I was about to throw away my filter!

Glad you got it fixed! I paused for a second when you first mentioned the shorter stick, but it just didn't click with me. LOL.
