Repair of F50mm f/1.7

Hi everyone, I own a great Pentax F 50mm f/1.7 lens.
Its optically great but it suffered the notorious noisy AF, so i decided to open it and fix it, which was a bad idea. Because I accidentally broke the electrical paper which connects the electrical compartments. Im not sure what this green paper is called officially, but here is a photo of it:

broken part

Now im searching for a replacement part for this, Ive been contacting Pentax directly, asahiphoto.co.uk and searched eBay but unfortunately I cant find it.
So my question is, does anyone know where I could get this part, or maybe even better has an idea how to fix this? I would be very glad if I would be able to fix this great lens!

Thank you in advance

I second Phil, Eric is the guy.

I have some lenses fixed by him and he does a great job.

The only other way I can think of is to get another with damaged lens element(s) and make a good one out of the 2 bad ones.
