Dave, mine is an SQ-Ai. I was not aware the SQ-A did not have the indicator tab. My mistake.
Anáil nathrach, ortha bháis is beatha, do chéal déanaimh.
Well my SQ-A seems to work fine it just feels like something is different about it thats all. I never saw the ME mirror thing before, but now it's there?!?!
cherryrig. Here are links to the sq-a and sq-ai manuals. Only the sq-ai has the indicator in the view screen for multi-exposure.

Looks like this indicator is another one of the sneaky differences between the -A and the -Ai that I was blissfully ignorant of.
Anyone has a tip on how to remove the lever if replacing it?
Mine is cracked and won't rotate the spindle. The gap in the crack is just getting bigger as i push the lever forward to multiple exposure mode. So I'm figuring that the spindle has an oval shape at the connection to the lever?
I'm quite inexperienced so it would be really nice to know if there's a chance to replace the lever by yourself if able to find a spare one.
(EDIT: SQ-Ai model, if that makes any difference)

Well, this is a snippet from a service manual which probably predates your -Ai, but I suspect it might be the same mechanics. The center blob on the spindle is a glued on bit of vinyl(?) that covers a screw head.

Thanks Dave! That was very helpful. I found the screw head grooves after scraping off some glue.
I see, I should have guessed, flats is the more obvious design of the shaft end.
