Replace Parking Brake Release Handle

I have a '99 E320. The parking brake release handle broke off, and although the parking brake release is still operable, by gripping the shaft, I would like to replace this part. Is this a part one can buy and can a "lay" person(s) replace it? I have not taken it to a dealer or my regular M/B repair shop yet as I'm guessing it's not a cheap fix.
Thanks for any insight.

The parking brake layout is shown here;
the handle should be readily available if you quote the part number. To replace the handle you must remove the driver side lower fascia panel,pull the release handle out to it's full extent to release it from the fascia then release the cable from it.
Hope this helps, George.
