Default slk200 2004 eaton supercharger - looking for a spring

i've struck a problem and looking for international help! :-) my manual slk200 dec2004 with about 80000 km lost the kick and the engine light came up and a little noise appeared. i took it to the mechanics straight away. after being quoted an 8 hour labor to remove and refit the supercharger (as the 'doctors' determined the noise coming of it) and a few days later waiting for really bad news, i was told a spring had broke and there is no further damage to supercharger. how wrong was i to think i have no issues?? i cannot find the spring!!!! merc only sells the complete supercharger for $5300AU!!! the only eaton distributor here only sells the part where the spring is (part number 307929 - 29DCB BEARING SPACER or i've seen it called the pulley) for $1000!!! and all i need is a $4 spring!!! does anyone else have/had same issue and can direct me elsewhere?? i've contacted eaton contact for the part in cleveland (as per their website) and they said the spring is not sold as a part.. so why on earth did it break and why should i pay $1000 for something i don;t need??? i'm attaching some photos of the part and the spring and desperately hoping someone can advise what to do /where to go. someone local suggested to find a company to make me the spring.. but i am really worried to put a non-eaton part and have more issues later on. advise? opinion? i would pay whatever to get the spring wherever in the world! :-) thanks in advance and very happy holiday to all!

yes! thx a lot!.. you really do all the hard work!
I also buy it yesterday!
I only hope that the spring is the right one! If it will be good i'll buy more!
In italy the price of the supercharger is €. 1844,00..
When i buy my slk they give me a paper: "Mercedes.. a world of surprises" And now I'm going to understand

Default Helppppppp!! Zues!!!

Hello Zeus! I have a problem! Surely you are able to solve it: my mechanic must install the supercharger does not have the technical details for the review ... I don't know what this card, but perhaps you have been able to solve this with your mechanic ..
HELPPPPPPPPP!!
