Broken s69/1 actuator pin

I would like to think Im not the only one this has happened to, or maybe I am. During the replacement process for the front locking cylinder, my roof dropped twice. The second time it snapped the plastic pin that actuates s69/1. I have a bandaid fix on it for now. I looked at the parts list for the R170 and it only shows the whole assembly (170-790-00-71). Does anyone know if there is a replacement for just the pin? Also, another problem Im having is the latches do not release fully when opening the top. Im hoping they just need to be greased properly. Ive sprayed WD-40 on the pivot points for now until I get some proper lube. Are there any adjustments I should look at to fix this problem?

don't use wd40 that is a solvent
not a lubricant

use lithium grease

I knew I would get blasted for using WD-40, but it was a first step in trouble shooting...

The pin is not sold separately. Use the shell of a ball point pen, our find a used latch on eBay.
