yes unscrew your shifter then lift the boot up at the end closest to you the front will then slide out. pull it off the shifter. there are to points where the cables attach to the shifter. you will see coil springs with the ends sandwiching the one on the right this is the centering spring. as you move the shifter you are lifting or pushing on the spring. it sounds like one of the fingers on the spring has broken or that the entire spring has detached from the shifter mechanism.
