Bearing retainer problem

The snout of the bearing retainer on my 4 speed broke off clean at the base, I noticed it when I was trying to push the clutch fork back to the rear to install the clutch linkage, When I pushed rearward on the fork I can see the TO bearing move forward contacting the forks on the pressure plate. The piece that broke off moves with the TO bearing. The only thing we did was rotate the crank to tighten the pressure plate bolts. Now, I need to pull the tranny and see what's up. Any suggestions?
