Default Broken plastic tabs in horn button

Hi, this question is in regards to a 2006 STI.

Theoretically, if one repeatedly punches their steering wheel to calm down about another driver's actions (rather than getting out of the car with a breaker bar and "Falling Down"), they might find that one of their horn buttons no longer works. And that broken button may start honking (Hella Supertones) randomly during turns or while in front of cops while waiting for children to cross the road.

Anyway, I removed the horn/airbag assembly via the 2 T-30 bolts. I found the cause of the problem to be a plastic tab broken off of one of the white plastic sleeves that reside in each corner of the horn button assembly. These sleeves seem to retain the return springs which provide the action for the horn button.

Can this plastic piece be ordered separately? I would rather not have to purchase an entire airbag assembly via the dealer. Curious if anyone else has had this problem and how they fixed it.

Thanks in advance!
