sun visor hinges broke. I removed it but cant find a replacement source or a part number. Will I have to go to the dealer for my SLK 230?

Driver's sun visor hinge broken, my convertible top is leaking hydraulic oil
The driver's side sun visor hinge keeps breaking. This is the second time I am replacing it, and I am told by Mercedes that they no longer make the part. Wonderful! What am I supposed to do now? Drive without one???
The Sun Visor will not go back into the up position
$190.00 per sun visor .... Not good!!!!
