Search for keyswitch and keycap

Last week, I have found an Apple Europlus and I found out that  the keyswitch is broken and the keycap of character ' ? /'  is missing. So I am looking for these parts. I hope someone (in Europe) can help me with this parts. I attached some images of the broken keyswitch and I' ve removed the keycap next of this to show the type of keyswitch I search for. The last image is an example of the keycap I am looking for.

3D Print

If the only thing broken is the shaft you can 3d print them. Files are on thingiverse

Thank you for this

Thank you for this information, this could be a possibility when I can not find an original keyswitch. In the meanwhile I opened the computer and found out the type number of the keyboard: K600-2003.  Maybe this will help for someone that has spare parts and can help me with this key stem.

Is that an RFI foil type

Is that an RFI foil type keyboard?  If so you need this:

Same vendor is also selling the keycaps and the foil plate.

It is indeed the RFI foil

It is indeed the RFI foil keyboard and I also found this auction but it is very expensive to ship this from USA to Holland, nearly $28 shipping + $8 import tax .

I hate ebay for that reason.

There's no reason why that couldn't ship via simple airmail for $6 or $8, but ebay insists on knowing package sizes beforehand and always defaults to the trackable (and expensive) mode of shipment.
