Velbon tripod: broken clamp clip, replaceable?

Hi,

I've had a Velbon Sherpa 600R tripod for many years now and it's built like a tank. However, on a recent trip the clip on the pan head broke off. It's left with a sharp bit of plastic that's very difficult to use and I can't even find the broken piece to try and reattach it.

I picked up the tripod by luck for cheap so I don't want to spend lots of money replacing the head (which is in good condition). Is there anywhere I can find a replacement clip? It appears to be screwed on with a spring underneath it so it's actually very simple to replace, but the problem is with finding the parts.

Thanks
