Are you sure its broken?

I know this little arm you are talking about does not move when body is in any of the auto modes (green, p, a, s.....) It works ONLY in full manual mode and only with non A lenses.

Have you tried it in manual mode? Does it stop down the lens when aperture ring is in any setting other than A?

It made a little click, and now the leaver stays up..... it should stay down, and "jump" up when i push the trigger.

I think the fix is easier than what you would think.
