Problem with Pentax MZ-5n mirror motor

I just purchased a Pentax MZ-5n that turned out to be defect, the mirror locked up.
I contacted a Norwegian camera workshop (I live in Norway) and they told med that they have no spare parts. I was told that Pentax used to make the mirror gear in plastic.

Does anybody know if it is possible to purchase such spare parts? Ebay?

Thanks a lot for any help!

Not sure, check the web links in the other thread. They still may be a source for parts.

See posts #51 and #92 in the above linked thread on where and what to order for a compatible replacement gear. Replacement is not a trivial task as it requires major tear-down of the camera to get to the parts.
