Help with GF670--decoupled RF mechanism by mistake

I was fiddling with the GF670 idly when I heard a light snap that sounded like something got detached (not that something broke, I think). Now the lens doesn't return to infinity. Tension stops it at 3m or so, and I don't want to force it.

It's hard to see what's happening in there, but I can vaguely see that the two levers/hooks affixed to the front of the lens that connects to the rest of the RF mechanism are now detached. (Circled in the attached photos.) And I can't close the camera up.

Does anyone have experience with this problem? Thanks.
