It looks like that handle should be able to pull straight off the end of the shaft once you remove the screw. See this exploded parts view: http://www.makita.com/en-us/Assets/images/Products/_PartsBreakdowns/PB_2703.pdf
My experience with them is that people tend to get frustrated and abandon the lock lever and just run the saw "loose". Scary as it sounds, I've seen it on more than one site.
Anyway, I don't have a fix for you if you can't get the handle off to re-position it.
Makita does have a tech support line if you want to give it a try. Otherwise, you may have to shell out a few bucks to one of their service centers. We used to have a great one in Albuquerque, but it's now defunct. People don't seem to repair tools like they used to...

I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number on the page and it should bring up a schematic that you can download and see where the part goes. Let me know if you have trouble finding it, if so I need the exact model number.

Take it back to where you purchased it or contact them by email/phone and explain your problem (have saw in hand). Together you can solve this. We cannot find the model number on your saw from here. GL

log onto Shimano.com, it is probably the limit screws (the two screws that limit travel) or you have a faulty ratchet in the lever, try the shimano website anyway they have great tutorial and manual support

A parts breakdown for your saw follows:
You can use it as a disassembly guide to attempt to find the leak. I fear from your description the reservoir has ruptured, it is NLA. Almost no parts are available for this saw. Maybe time for a replacement. Consider a name brand, someone you expect to be in business 10 years from now when a quality saw needs repair parts.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH
