Unhappy Door frame switch...

OK don't ask me how i did it but i managed to rip the door frame switch (ya know the one that tells the car whether the door is open or closed) right out so now my stereo stays on whether or not the door is open. So i was wondering if anyone out there knows where i can pick up a replacement switch from and how exactly I'm going to get inside the actual door frame.

I'd say a junk yard or the dealer. You may even be able to get it covered under warranty?

I would go with a used part as well. A similar thing happened to a friend of mine. He drilled out the hole and put in a threaded sleeve that fit the switch.
