A B200 that was left on a desk at home during some measurements was damaged by my wife dropping it. Crying or Very sad

It has no visual damage but it appears that the voice coil shows a slight rub against the magnet.

I see no screws or anything implying that the magnet is adjustable. Or a hint that it has moved at all.

Is there a way to fix this? It's not life and death situation - I have others and perhaps can buy a replacement on the cheap - but I'd hate to scrap the unit. It has excellent looks and the newer, smooth cone and soft dust cap.

[I may be wrong here with KEF units but sometimes the magnets have been merely glued on. If it has ben dropped the adhesive may have given way allowing the magnet to be dislodged and hence polepieces rubbing on the voice coil... ?
