    Here is a link to the Flex 5000 service manual. I believe it has a list of parts. Hopefully this will help.

    It looks like DigiKey has it.

    With old equipment sometimes a fellow ham has a parts only radio on the shelf with a part you are looking for.

    I have also removed a bad switch and was able to repair it if you are handy.

    As a last resort you could hardwire the switch and use an external switch.

    Does any of the others on this blog have a parts radio that can help?

    if you have removed the switch can you post a picture? May help
