Running out of ideas after after 4 months of Mobility Warnings

Does anything have a moment to take look at a page for me? After ignoring Google Consoles Mobility Issues - Clickable Elements too close or Content wider than screen for the last 4 months  - I noticed that some of the pages these refer to have not only started to lose ranking, but one in particular has disappeared from search. 

I know general advice is to ignore some of Google Consoles mobile warnings - but these are not going away and consistently warn me that the page is not mobile friendly each month  (though, as we all know, when entered into Google Mobile Friendly Test these pages have no issues) and I certainly cannot see where the issues lie, even after getting friends to view the pages on their devices.

But now page ranking has come into the arena, I am beginning to worry.  I have installed Chrome Lighthouse ( most confusing) without seeing an error related to these issues. (though finding lots of others that appear to be in the realm of Sq Sp code than anything I can do) 

I wondered if anyone might take a look for me and see if they can spot either of the Clickable Elements too close or Content wider than screen” mobility issues.

Although the mobility warnings affect a half-dozen pages on the site, it is specifically this one that I am most concerned with.

Well. I resolved this by duplicating the page, removing the accordion element and hey presto - all fine. Now I know that it was not the accordion by itself, as I use this on other pages that google has not issued mobile warnings on - so this is my basic understanding. Some pages were constructed during the Fluid engine transition and were never functioning well after. Only by reproducing the page now things are more settled, am I seeing these errors disappear. 

I have now run the same test on other pages with   - specifically the Content too wide for screen warnings -  and am seeing google remove the warnings within 24 hours. So after 4 months of seeing pages slip away, they are slowly returning. 

Now, off to finish the other mobility warnings....

Thanks for sharing this!

Sometimes the solution is simpler than anticipated, but given how we cannot spot it judging only by the G console mobile warnings, finding a solution can be a hassle... So, the problem occurred during the Fluid engine transition, and you were able to 'revert' the tendency of some of those pages suddenly not appearing on queries - by duplicating them. Cool, good to know!
