apparently a set screw came loose, an assembly broke....you'll have to take apart to get to it and see...unless you've got an inspection mirror you can see what is supposed to hold the thing in...that isn't holding the thing in~ I will see about an image for you BMW is outstanding with sharing their documentation (so you can get parts easier I guess) will look for what holds the show together...might take a sec~

did you lose clip number 13?

....take your time....
