Gear Shift Indicator Broken?

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows any fixes for a broken gear shift indicator. The little orange pin doesn't move at all when I change gears its pegged all the way to the right all the time.

I have searched and saw threads about adjusting the pin where it would move when changing gears, but none about fixing a broken one.

Any ideas?

What do you think the chances are it just came unhooked? It wouldn't shift if that were the case correct?

It ended up being the loop was broken. Whoever the idiot was that assembled these things didn't strip the red coating off the little cable, so the cable slipped out coating and the little brass clamp that creates the loop. So I rigged something up with a zip tie and an electrical connector.
