Advice needed for my broken p30t

Hi Everyone, this is a bit of a long shot...
I have a mint P30t (which i love and use regulary) which has a broken stop down coupler (dont ask, my fault...).

Im planning on finding a cheap/ faulty p30 off ebay that I can use to get the replacement part I need for the repair.
As the coupler is plastic on the p30, does anybody know if a metal one out of another model will fit?

Cheers John

Ouch!

Conventional wisdom is that mirror box issues are pretty much fatal (not worth the cost of repair). Good luck.

BTW...There is a good P30t in a shop near me. PM me if you want more information.

Hi steve, thanks for the reply.
Actually the coupler is very easy to remove, I took it out last night to see if it was possible, so I have no fears replacing it. The camera is in such good condition that I want to save it and thought that if a metal replacement was an option Id try that...
