I fixed mine when it started "slipping" like they have a tendency to do.
I took it apart. There's an apparatus into which the rod slides. I put a screw into it so it would tighten up nicely. Then I applied some black tape to the chrome rod that fits into it.
It is now tight and smooth running and should be good for another 100,000 miles.
Don't be afraid to take yours apart, if you have one of these. The repair was easy and as soon as you look at inside, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Let me know if you have any problems after you look at it. There's a piece in there that needs a "set screw" to make it grip the rod that spins. Also the rod that spins is a bit of a sloppy fit so a bit of electrical tape around the end of it seems to take the play out of it.
