Maybe bought a lemon?

I took a daring step, and bought my first eBay item from Japan: a Minolta AF 2x Teleconverter II APO.   Sold as "near mint".   It arrived today.  As far as I can see, it does not AF, and shows no aperture info.  I read somewhere on dpreview.com that I should clean the contacts, so I did that.  No dice.  Moreover, when I mount the 200/2.8 APO on it, it doesn't click smoothly into place...

Should I return it (I'll be out €50 for import duty and handling, but ...) or is there something else I should try first?

Paypal? Just say "No!"
