Rebuild / repair my Sigma 70-200 2.8

I have an older Sigma 70-200 2.8 that I really love. A few years ago I had a mishap that lead to the coupling that attaches to the camera body pulling away a little. The lens still works but on occasion the lens is not fully connected and it grinds the gears while trying to focus. I am wondering if there is a place that I could send it in for a repair or essentially a rebuild? I know I should buy a new unit but if I could save this lens I would like to for a few hundred versus a thousand plus for a new model.

Have you tried contacting Sigma? They adjusted an old 70-200 f2.8 for me a couple years ago.

I believe the main Sigma service center is in New York.
