Bent/broken locking button on 200-500?

A few weeks ago I started to notice that the locking switch on my 200-500 wouldn't work unless I rotated the zoom ring a very slight bit away from the 200mm end towards 500.  Then yesterday the lock got stuck and I had to force the zoom ring a bit and it made a horrible screeching noise and then it was able to be unlocked.  Now the locking switch feels loose.

Anyone seen this issue before?  I'll most likely have to send it in to Nikon Canada for repair, anyone have any ideas on how long that might take?
