Two ways to put the tube back in the port:

2. Without taking the driver out, put two layers of electrical tape on the inside flange of the front port.
#2 will require you to pull the tube from within it and only if your arm can go through all the way in and you can grab the other end of the tube and only then you can pull it in place.
This actually made a very tight fit.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the advice- here's the funny thing...
When I decided to inspect it, the tube seemed in place, and wasn't rattling anymore. I stuck my arm in and low and behold, it came loose again- as of the moment, it's back in place (i was able to pull it back in place...)
I have hooked it up in my living room, where my ML Dynamo is living at the moment, to test it out. I may indeed try your fix, as it sounds easy, and will keep me from having to deal with the re-pack and RMA stuff.
I'll update once I get some more testing done. (SO FAR, it sounds OK- I haven't yet gotten to my "reference levels" yet, but nonetheless it appears to be OK otherwise...)
