nah, your push rod isn't going to wear out - go and get another shifter - it would seem the insides of your current one are broken.

dunno how different the EF ones are, but my previous EL one has a little 'plug' covering a screw, undo the screw and the button slides out. Even on my new leather wrapped one, theres a little hole in the lether to get a driver in to undo the screw.

sorry - yes you can pull the stuff out like that for sure - bu if you wanted to get into the actual handle itself (not that they'res much in there to look at!) then you have to pull the surroundings off :?
