Default Servo and swashplate after crash

I have just got this heli, (Xmas, never flown before) its a KDS 450QS (comes ready to fly out of box). Been practicing on Pheonix, but in the real world things crunch. Small roll over the front into the ground and the servo and swashplate look like this.

See how the starboard servo is fully up, and the rear one is all the way down. I power up every thing and the starboard servo moves down a bit, but niether will defualt to 90*

Have I stripped the servo's?
If i have, do I need a Swashplate Leveler Tool to get it correct after fixing the servo's?
If I have not stripped the servo's but just "knocked" it out of wack, would I still need the Swashplate Leveler Tool to set it up again ?

Being new on the site I did not realise the first few post would be vetted. To save time I went down to my local heli supplier and he showed me all I had done was effectively "jumped" the two control arms, the servo's seem to be ok. Removed the two problems arm, powered up to get the servo’s back to 0 position and refitted the arms.
Will test in the light tomorrow and see if I cannot crash it this time
