Right Retract on Dynam A-1 Skyraider Closes Half Way

Fellows, my right retract worked fine first two cycles--now I notice that the
stainless steel pin which projects half inch out of the strut near the base does not
turn when closing the retract ( pin prevents the retract from closing). Have
enclosed a picture. HOW DO I FIX THIS PROBLEM? I know nothing about

Also, some how or other when I opened the right retract the third time, I spotted
two little magnets stuck on the metal plate at the base of the retract. They don't
exist on the left retract. Where do they go?

any help would be appreciated,

If the left retract is working like it should, make all the parts and pieces of the right retract look the same. It should work then.

If not call the mfg for some help.

Dynam retracts stink, you would do well to replace the stock ones with something a bit more reliable.
