Post 1979-1980 450sl convertable top release lever

Just purchased a 1980 450sl and it has the crank style handle to unlock the hard/soft top for removal, however the little release lever's two rear prongs are broken Therefore I can't release the rear tang to get the hard top off.. does anyone have one in the atlanta area or know of a reasonably priced(cheap) place to get one... I'm attaching a pic with the part I need circled.
