    remove consol and gaiter ,there are 2 springs one either side of lever ,and a bias plate with a vertical tab which holds springs in correct position so lever rests at 3rd 4th alignment ,tab will have broken off

    As James said the tab will have broken off the bias plate.

    Either weld it back on, or buy a new one at about a fiver from your local LR dealer.
