Default Door Lock Switch

As many of you know, I have had the case of the Haunted PT for a couple of days. I haven't been happy. First of all I read all the stories about the RKE and the switches. Well I regretfully placed a call for the car to be inspected. It was doing all the usual. It kept locking and unlocking. It was driving me crazy. Finally tonight while at a friends house, I said, "im so much smarter than this." so I started doing some thinking. "If it is the switch that is faulty, I should be able to figure this out." Here is what I found out.
1. The passenger side lock switch is bad. Sometimes it would work, other times it wouldn't. I took both the door panels off, and installed the driver side switch in the passenger site. NO MORE CLICKING AND UNLOCKING!!!

I now have the fault switch sitting here on my desk. I have to say, that without the guides and information I have read on here, I never would have had the info or the courage to go in here and learn how to take the door panels and stuff off. OK, sorry so long, but a question:
1. Where can I locate a new switch without it costing me an arm and a leg?
any websites?

Thanks again you guys, and I hope someone can help me with this search. I have tried ebay but found nothing.

I'd first price it from dealer. It'll cost more than it's worth, but still might not be too bad. If you feel it's too exorbitant, try a salvage yard (sounds better than junkyard) - call them first to see if they have any PTs and what they'd want for switch.
