    You're simply going to have to install a new replacement or at worst, an entire new DVD drive. Try here http://www.gameconsolerepair.com/ps2parts.html and verify that the part listed as "Replacement laser elevation guide arm assembly" is the part in question. You will also need to know your PS2 model # when ordering. Installation is moderately difficult for an individual with average mechanical skill.

    It might but it probably won't hold. The best way to fix it would be replacing.
