Question Rear lock-folding-roof assembly limiter switch replacement

Howdy fellow z350 owners,

due to unfortunate accident, I've damaged the limiter switch of the lock-folding-roof assembly (pictured bellow).
Since the entire assembly new is quite expensive, I'd like to avoid unnecessarily replacing everything and instead I'm looking for sourcing just the limiter switch.
Does anyone know where one can find suitable replacement?
Thank you very kindly in advance!

Its a microswitch, check Mouser Electronics, Grainger, Graybar for a replacement. Should be available, Mouser has tons of electronic components.

Thank you myork for pointing me in the right direction.

After some search I've resolved the producer to be Matsushita Electric and the part is an ABJ (BJ) Turquoise switch with wire leads bottom (simulated roller) leaf lever type and a 3mm mounting hole.




Trouble is that Matsushita has been acquired by Panasonic so the part numbers have change, thus for reference I'm attaching the Panasonic specifications:

https://www.manualslib.com/manual/11...sonic-Abj.html
http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/316/sw_m_eng_abj-1074849.pdf

So it comes down to one of these:
ABJ361840
ABJ362840
ABJ363840

These switches are pretty easy to adjust/bend with needle nose pliers or hemostats to perform correctly. Have you checked for voltage when open/closed?

Unfortunately in this case the plastic holding the leaf lever has failed thus rendering the entire switch unusable.
