There's nothing more to say. You know how it does that thing where you push
the stylus down and it locks in, and you push it down again and it releases?
Well, now it stays released and doesn't grip. There is no clicking sound.

I guess my question really should be, can it be fixed with just a simple
procedure to re-align something, or a procedure for replacing a part, or is
it something more complicated?

What I'm thinking of is, is there a possibility that something has just
popped out of somewhere, and I need to go in carefully so as not to lose a
spring or bend something essential? Or can I just go ahead and dismantle
the thing?
