Question strig of pearls in air fan control

Hi there.
I just took the fan/heater unit out of the car to repair a little leak in a pipe.
I looked around for other possible problems.
Everything was fine but when I disconnected all the wires of the panel controls (warm or air fan), a strig of pearls came out of the air fan control switch.
I dismantled it to see how it worked.
The mecanism is fine but the string is cut, broken.
It fits in a kind of gear in the mecanism.
I called my local specialist but he doesn't have the part to replace it.
Ordering it could take 2 weeks for delivery.
Do you think I could repair it by tying it with thick fishing line ?
Do you have a better solution ?
Thanks

Fishing line will work for the short haul, but asit ages, it'll get brittle and break. I would suggest you wait for the right part to come in. Good luck!
