Yes, I saw them too but thought it was proper. Just a question. If in case I fix it up does it affect (fixing process) the quality of the image later on.

If you can put everything back together as original it should not impact IQ. The key is lining up the helicoids and guides. This is hard if you don't know how it is suppose to be in the first place. If you can find an online guide, that may help else it is trial and error.

Helicoids are probably the second hardest repair after cemented lens groups.

If you can return, probably best to do that.
