I've just tried to remove my old 8 speed Ergos to sell them. However I tried undoing them by undoing the alen key bolt behind the lever and not the correct one to the side.

Everything still works but the thumb lever doesn't return to the same place instead it keeps moving down and only goes back up again when the main lever is shifted.
I tried just turning the bolt back but that hasn't cured it.
It's the R/H lever by the way, and I don't know exactly the model.

As I assume it's not terminal can someone help or is anyone interested in buying them cheaper?

Cheers

Pleeeeese help

I can see whats wrong. The little spring that makes the thumb shifter return has popped out. it's visible while the lever is assembled.

It's easy to get to, but impossible to tension.
I can get the thumbie in the right place but can't locate the spring
Or
I can locate the spring but not the thumb shifter, because of the tension.
There mustbe a knack?
