No worries Stevie. I actually followed the guide by the letter bit by bit several times over and over again!  :001: :232:
Im fairly confident the retaining clip is the issue, as the wheel started moving more freely once I started playing with that, so i will get one ordered and change it.

Ive been for a test ride tonight however and everything works fine, I checked to make sure the brake disc wasnt getting hot and it was fine. I can move the bike around ok  so it doesnt seem to be a major issue for now but I will be monitoring it.
