older Bigma and sticking lens lock switch

Hey gang,

My older Bigma lens had a problem with the lens lock sticking. I was about to send it off to repair when I read here about taking the cover off the switch and reseating it. I did that, and the switch worked fine.

I recently sold the lens, and the buyer has told me that the lock was sticking again, so I mentioned taking the cover off. He had read the same fix I had, so he did that, and it works with one important caveat - it looks like one of the screws had come out and is inside the lens. Has anyone else had this happen to them, and if so, how did you fix it? The buyer likes the lens, but obviously you can't go around with a screw rattling around inside the lens. Short of taking the lens apart, does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?
