Thanks

take it to the shop you bought it from, should be covered under warranty.

Try hosing it out with WD40, followed by Triflow.

Do what AEO said before what tellyho said.

If neither pans out, I would find whatever. eBay for just a left/front shifter. Shouldn't be that hard to find. Performance difference between Tiagra and the next level up, 105, are minimal at best for the left/front.
