Spare parts for lens repairs

Well hi again, thanks for the welcome as I mentioned before I have taken delivery of a K-S2 and I am very excited as this is a great camera, I have been familiarizing( I just realised, that you guys over in the States spell things shall we say differently from the mother tongue!, z where s should go!, just a joke no offence) myself with its features and have been taking some photos on the way, will post when I find out how.

I have also been playing with my small range of A series SMC lenses and I have a spare 1.7 50mm prime which has fallen victim to the well known aperture ring problem so my question is can the little metal parts for fixing this little gem be purchased from anywhere, specifically the A-M selecting plate, and the ball bearing spring combo, also the thin metal bar which attaches with a plastic weld.

Thanks
