Pentax Flash Shoe

A friend of mine dropped my Pentax AF-500ftz flash and the shoe broke.

The part with the metal prongs is cracked and needs to be replaced if I'm going to mount it on a camera. After searching the forum, I found that a few people have replaced the shoe by themselves after ordering the shoe from Pentax. However, when I emailed Pentax, I was instructed to send in the flash. So my question is, how do you just order a part from Pentax?
