Need help with Tokina

Hi everyone. Few days ago i've bought Tokina-A 28-70 2.8-4.3 on Ebay. I though that lens is Ok, but is is broken. Zoom ring is not working it stuck between 35 and 50mm. Maybe there is a secrete how to change focal lenght or it is realy broken. Does anyone have expirience in repairing of such lens or service manual? Thanks.

Even older zoom lenses are quite complex, it is a lot of work and skills needed to repair them. If the seller did not specify that the lens zoom ring is broken I would return it.
