No misled, my misunderstanding.
So, Nos has just proved it looks OK.
What happens when you push the lever? What moves where? (or not, as the case may be!)
I have the nagging feeling you may be about to find out what the inside of a control box look like.... There are plenty of little plastic bushes in there. Once they all wear things don't quite travel as far as they should.
Mine was as loose as a <comparison removed to prevent bilging> , but a set of replacement bushes (about a fiver or so about 5 years ago?) later and it's as good as new.
Best go find a screwdriver, a digital camera & a big sheet of paper / card to lay the bits out on - it's an intersting jigsaw puzzle in there.....
(But not too bad if you are methodical & careful when you dismantle it)
