2012 GL450 Sunroof Switch Issue

Good morning. The past few weeks I have been noticing an issue with the sun roof switch on the over head console (map lamp in EPC). So the sunroof will open fine, but sometimes when you push the switch forward it won’t move forward. When I push the switch up to pop open the sun roof it will close and then pop open with no issue. When I push the switch down it will close just fine. It seems to me that the forward position in the sunroof switch is bad. Looking at part number 164-870-29-26-7E94 it looks like the switch comes as the whole assembly. Now granted I can get the assembly at cost for $760, I was wondering if anyone knows if the switch is indeed available separately.

Switch is not available separately. It was covered under my extended warranty. You can find it used on eBay for a decent price.
