    Instead of paying for a new part you can get the existing part repaired using a helicoil kit (the kit usually comes with everything you need, you have to supply the drill). This involves drilling out the old damaged threads and tapping a slightly bigger hole. You then screw in a stainless steel spring. The ID of the spring matches the original thread. These are often used to repair threads in soft alloys and the repair is stronger than the orignal thread. Below is a link with some info.
