There is a part diagram of the K10D here.

According to this post, the part should be around $12.

Reaching Pentax parts might be a problem, since I could not find a phone number.
thanks for info, i did get the diagram a couple days ago, i'd have to assume that the parts can't be that much different for the K20D.

i'm currently waiting for a K5. i may in time send my K20D in to get fixed. i have also noticed something moving inside the body now too, sounds like something large too as opposed to something small rattling around.

Not to play "gotcha" or anything like that, but that is precisely what I meant when I posted to the OP - - -

If someone knocked it off the picnic table there may be a lot more wrong with it than the viewfinder issue.
It would seem to me that to shatter the viewfinder would require quite a jolt.
I think a shattered viewfinder would call for a visit to some repair facility for evaluation - Pentax or independent.

Good Luck and let us know what the outcome is.
Thanks

I had to replace my K-x viewfinder last week due to some scratches.
Are you sure you don't mean the "focusing screen" ?
My understanding was that the OP was referring to the "viewfinder" which is the
small window where you place your eye and where the diopter control is.
Now I am confused.

Yeah I know it's an old thread but...since I recently ordered a viewfinder, I thought a disassembly link was here and I was wrong. Anybody know of some decent instructions on opening up a K-x or do I have to wing it???
