2012 Sram XX issue! Advise wanted.

Hey guys, I'm not a mechanic but I live and work in Afghanistan at the moment so I have to fix my bike myself. Local mechanics have no idea how to fix mountain bikes.

So I have a set of 2012 Sram XX brakes and I needed to reach-adjust one of the levers. Obviously I unscrewed the reach adjust pushrod too much so that it disconnected from the pushrod pivot pin. And now I can't screw it back in! Bizzare, huh? And the lever body is hard to put apart.

I wonder if anything can be done to help this misery? I won't be back home for another 3 months and it's a great weather to ride a bike right now.

Any ideas? Much appreciated.

Thanks,
m
