ME Super film rewind lever

I have an ME Super that I love dearly. I noticed recently that the film rewind lever was a little loose, but still worked. However, on returning from a trip out to take some pictures around town, I saw that it had fallen off somewhere (without my noticing), leaving just a bare screw thread above the exposure compensation/film speed rings. What to do? I could probably manage to rewind the film that is already in the camera, but I can't really do without the lever long-term. I suppose I could find a replacement by buying a similar non-functioning model; would it be straightforward to transfer the lever from one camera to another? I'm on a very restricted budget, so any way of sorting this for very little money would be very welcome!

Check on eBay. There is at least one seller that sells parts like this. Just be patient and set up a saved search to notify you when something turns up. Finding the proper screw will be more difficult.

Edit: A search on eBay "Pentax Rewind Lever":

There are at least 4 other listings for the ME Super too.
