Help! Pentax DA spare parts, where?

Can anyone help me? I've got a broken DA 4/16-45 and I need a spare part for it but the local Finnish authorized repair place won't sell parts. I've already taken the lens apart and know how to put it back together so I'm not interested in sending the whole lens to them as it'll most likely be very costly.

So I'm looking for a place (preferably in Europe, maybe elesewhere) which will sell me the part in question. I've contacted Asahi Photo in UK and they said they do sell parts but after my initial e-mail I've received no reply to my queries so I don't what's up with them.

So if anyone knows a source for DA parts please let me know.

Thanks in Advance!

Not Europe, but USA....

Just a wild thought....but have you contacted "Eric" here in the US? He might be able to help. I don't have his email handy, but its probably listed somewhere here on the forum.

His name pops up regularly as someone who does fine work on Pentax products.

This thread mentions getting parts for the 16-45 from Pentax Canada. Maybe try "service@pentax___.___" for nearby countries?

I've sent quite a few e-mails around Europe and so far I've got a "maybe" and I'm waiting to hear from another place next week when their "Pentax guy" gets back from vacation.

btw thats the exact same part that I'm looking for in that thread

How about http://www.pentaxspares.co.uk? I haven't bought any spares from them, but have used their repair services before.
