Canon 5d MK1 Bent Compact Flashcard pins

Can anyone help me in where I can purchase a new CF Pin assembly or module for a Canon 5D Mk1 which is in really first class condition and still takes great photos. Thanks.

My camera shop managed to straighten the pins with a fine tweezer/pliers

Yeah, unless you find a used one on eBay, you probably will have to resort to using tweezers/needle nose pliers.

i wouldn't despair so fast, as suggest, if you have good hand dexterity, you can fix it, just takes a little time. i still have my 5D since 2006 and i am very careful with my cameras, never push cards with force. if the card doesn't go in with ease, that means something is wrong and have resolve that issue before forcing things.
