Broken signal lever

Hi All:

I've joined the ranks of those with broken stalks, however mine is somewhat
different from the topic of the last few days (same stalk, headlamps instead
of turn signals).  Anyway, here is the problem:  While attempting a left
turn, I also attempted a left turn signal (because it's the right thing to do
;),  Well, the da$# thing wouldn't catch, so I gave it a little extra nudge.
 Well, of course I crunched something, I assume a little switch that holds
the signal in place until coming out of the turn.  The signal will work if I
hold it down about 3/4, but will not stay locked "on" at all.  Does anyone
have some experience here?  Must the entire stalk be replaced, is the a swith
or lever that can be replaced, or even fixed? Or will the Audi gods require
an entire steering wheel and column (wouldn't be terribly surprised if it
