OK - Missed that green screw the 1st time...sorry
THAT is what bonds the neutral bars to the case

It MUST be removed

Great. Thank you for everything!!! One last question. Is there any advantage to run a main breaker on this panel?

Cost when I bought mone was less for the panel with the main breaker
So my sub 3' to the left of the main panel has a main breaker

I prefer to have the main breaker in a sub
There is a rule for a structure that you have to be able to shut off power with 6 throws
Since your main is there you are all set
