Pentax DA* 50-135 SMC motor

Good day!
I have a trouble with my lens. My lens has been checked by a specialist, who told me the focusing motor in my lens stopped working. (lens fell down on the floor =( ).
The problem with the service is that it will take them ages to repair and will be an expensive event.
Maybe someone knows, where can I find a new/used motor for mentioned lens so a specialist I know can install it?
Thanks in advance.

Maybe you can order one from Pentax? I know others here have ordered parts for their cameras.

I have visited various pentax services (Germany, USA, UK). The only happy email was from UK service: pentaxservice@jpss.co.uk.
They were happy to help and today I ordered the motor. Paid by credit card via telephone. Promised the shipping will take 10 days. Will inform on progress.
It cost me 44 + VAT + shipping
