Should my R129 cruise control lever be floppy?

It's got about 1" of up and down play, and is frictionless - just sits in the down position. When I want to set it, I just need to lightly press it to the top - hardly any pressure needed when it reaches there, and that sets it.

It feels quite different to any other cruise control I've used, but I haven't had the chance to try another R129 for copmparison.

Should it be like this?

I don't think that is normal. Mine has no play at all. It sounds like it has something gotten loose somewhere.

Very little pressure is needed to move the switch, but it should not sit in the down position; it should sit in the middle position with no looseness.
