OEM R171 Auto Shift Knob

Hello Everyone,

I've searched and searched but I couldn't find the help I needed. Attached is a picture of the damage my dad made to my shift knob.

Is there a way to just replace the silver ring, if so can someone provide me with a part number? Otherwise, I will need the part number for the replacement knob. Thank you in advance for any help provided.

The part is as follows in the EPC:

Shift Lever Handle A 171 267 27 10

It includes the handle and the shroud, and requires a color code. I would order it at the dealer or at one of the online sites that actually is a dealer (like http://www.mymercedesparts.com/ ) and then just call them up for the color code.
