70-200mm VR II Problem! - Tripod Collar Blocked

I just pulled out my 70-200mm tonight and noticed that the tripod collar is sticking.

When I try to turn the lens inside the collar the tightening knob is getting stuck on something causing the lens to stop turning once the knob hits the area near the A/M-M/A-M switch.

I always keep the lens inside a well padded, hard Storm case so I don't know what could have caused this problem. It has never been dropped or anything.

Question is, should I go ahead and break out my screwdriver and try to figure out what is going on or should I just send it in?

If anyone else has had this problem I'd like to know what you did.

Thanks,
Jason
