Slip ring

I have broken the slip ring on my steering wheel. Long, boring, story . Does anyone happen to have an extra steering wheel or slip ring lying around? Pelican has them, but special order. There is more than one part number. Mine ends in 1-162-111. Been checking on Ebay, to no avail. Thanks.

The slip ring is the plastic part between the steering wheel and column. It contains the wires for the airbag and horn. It's job is to keep electrical contact when the wheel is turned.

Only the cover is plastic. The actual contact ring is metal
