Basically, you have two screws, one where you can adjust the angle of the shifter (which is the one you're supposed to remove to install the shifters) and one that disassembles the shifter (which is of course the screw I removed...). Dumb, dumb, dumb... I put it all together again, but I can't get the hole for the cable (the cable guide) to align with the hole on the shifter body and I have ZERO indexing at all. Small movement up and then back down again is all I can do.
Any ideas how I can fix my idiot mistake?!

No cable involved at all so far... Basically did a really dumb thing and unscrewed the wrong screw when I was going to install the shifters (yes, I know... read the manual carefully first).
The cable guide is right next to the locking "tab" and there's no way to move them independently. At this point, when I place the tab into the pocket of the shifter body (i.e. the only way you can assemble the shifter together), there's no indexing at all, only a very small, micro step, in one direction and the only thing I can do after that is the same micro step in the opposite direction... that's it! Everything is pretty much locked up.
The tab is right next to the cable guide...

I've rotated the black square in either direction, but the tap that locks the mechanism in place and the cable guide rotates as well (as it should). How do I get it back to zero?
What I did I lined the little metal tab with the slot in goes into on the black section. I then rotated the lever so it pointed forward. I then put the half's together. It took a couple of tries to get the lever position correct since you can be off by a tooth or two.
I can seat the tab into the pocket so the shifter can get assembled, but nothing I do seems to change the lack of movement when I assemble it.
1. hold black square with pliers, and catch the tab. Index till it's aligned correctly.
2. attach back to the bar, without wire, and index till aligned.
.. they both basically do the same thing, and unfortunately, neither fix my problem.
Once the black square is held, and the metal tab is held, it's impossible to index more than one click. So, how do I get to the cable insert opening to shift down and align properly? There must be a way? I did contact Campy in Cali, and they suggested i take to the local "campy proshop". Called them, and asked if they had any idea what i was talking about, and it was obvious they didn't, so I'm hesitant to take it there.
Any one have schematics on this component?
