Are you referring to the

Are you referring to the shift lever on the side of the transmission, or the clutch lever at the rear of the transmission?

Since the clutch lever has no screw holding it in place I will assume you removed the shift lever. Especially since oil came out.

Is it possible the shifter moved deeper into the trans when you tried to reinstall the lever? Can you screw the bolt into the shifter mechanism and pull it back out? Then carefully reinstall the lever?
