Sink pop up horizontal bar "ball" leaks...How do I stop?

I just installed a new pop up pipe for the bathroom sink and all is well except for where the horizontal bar that has the white ball on it.

Water is leaking from that little pipe with the "white ball" inside. I've tried repositioning the entire pipe, but no matter where I put it, the leak still happens.

Any advice on how to stop this is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, in advance, for your assistance.

The cap that holds the white ball and lever into the pipe has a rubber or plastic seal in it. Make sure it is there and tighten the nut a bit more.

If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
