You do not need to replace it. If it does not read the same when you reverse it, on one end there are a nut over and under the tube and plug assembly. Adjust those up or down until it reads the same.

SOURCE: How do you replace the bubble in a starrett 98 Level

Contact me at Starrett and I can email you the instructions on how to change the vial only if you want. The other option is to purchase a new tube and plug assembly (the silver tube with the vial). That is much easier to do. After, you can always send the old one in for repair. Third option is to send out the tube and plug assembly to be repaired.
Most people will change the vial only the first time, after that they go with option 2 or 3.

Sit level on near level surface. Observe bubble position. Turn level end for end. Does bubble sit at same position? If not adjust screw untill they match. Test, adjust and so on.

The off level light doesn't turn off therefore doesn't level at all,


Your vial and compensator no longer match up. Move the foot screws until you can get your laser to spin, then adjust your leveling vial until it reads level again, using the 3 screws holding the vial inplace.

Laser is level but out of level light blinks and will not spin


Your compensator and leveling vial are no longer aligned. Use your foot screws to find a place where the laser spins, then use the 3 hex head screws on the vial, to adjust it to read level.

My model 449 starrett depth mic turns hard, how can I fix this?


Are you aware of the lock nut that keeps the barrel from turning? There is a knurled ring next to the base that rotates to lock and unlock the barrel with a clamping action. Check that this is not causing the problem. Turn to left to unclamp.

Vials leaked


obtain a number one phillips screw driver and remove the small screws next to the vial. Pop off the cover and then remove the vial. Insert the new vial and replace the remaining pieces. Good luck
