Help - Broken Manfrotto 468 Ball Head

Help - Broken Manfrotto 468RC2

Posted this by mistake with spotting scopes, but no joy. So thought I'd try here.

I've foolishly managed to nagger my Manfrotto 468 Ball Head.

There was a click as I was tightening the Ball Lock Knob and then the Knob and Friction Adjuster assembly popped out. I have all the bits and initially thought I'd sheared the pin, but looking at a drawing on the Manfrotto site the pin looks like it should be in two parts.

Any ideas as to how to fix, drawings showing how it should be assembled or failing that anywhere I can get it repaired.

Many thanks
