Source for Alivio shifter parts?

I discovered that my "new to me" Rockhopper is missing the cover off the right shifter (8-speed Alivio). The "fixing screw" is in place.

I got a part number from the Shimano Tech Docs site and have done some searching and have only been able to find it at Petra Cycles in UK.

I've tried most of the major online places in the U.S. as well as places like LooseScrews and BikeParts without luck.

Anyone have suggestions where I might be able to source this small part?

ebay for broken shifters or your LBS... which might be able to get one for you.

Any real shop should be able to order direct from shimano that part #.

I JUST today replaced my Alivio shifters on my Fuji Sagres. I have 3 of the four top screws left, but if I'm not mistaken, that's a bottom view. You need the cover and the screw? I was going to toss them - they are worn OUT, but I'll part it out for ya. PM me if you are interested.
