other than replace the cable, and flush and re lube it, since they are internally complicated, you buy a new shifter-brake lever.

get one with the same 'speeds'/cog count number on the rear cassette.

10 years ago has been a long time in the competitive world of companies pushing for more speeds in their rival product lines..

8 & 9 speed gave been superseded, by 10 & 11 and soon 12 speeds..

try asking at a bike shop, they get repair parts for older bikes

the big online shops push the latest stuff , there wheel - hub and the whole drive-train have to be replaced... big money..
