Flashbang will become famous soon enough

I believe you may mean Peco PL10 motor?
Gaugemaster produce a PM10 but AFAIK this is not suitable for surface mounting.

They are fitted in one of three ways. Directly to the underside of the point using the four metal tabs. To the underside of the baseboard with an extended operating pin or as you seem to have on the surface using the Peco PL12 adaptor base like this example Example link
If the plastic operating arm is broken that connects motor to point tie bar replace the whole base unit.
But as suggested, posting a clear photo of the problem will help us further.
Broken? It was working when I left it!
