Bonnet lock release handle for 159?

Chaps, for some inexplicable reason half the plastic handle that stops the bonnet from popping up has sheared off.

Does anyone know if they can be bought separately, or do I have to buy the whole mechanism?

Ditto. I broke mine within a few months of ownership. Luckily there is enough of a stub that I can still open the bonnet. Only afterwards did I find page 105 of the manual where it warns the bonnet must drop only 20 cm to shut. It is too easy for the bonnet to evade the grasp and drop from a great height, followed by a clatter as most of the lever finds its way down to the under tray. This must have happened to hundreds of owners.
