Replace or easy fix?

Hey guys,

So in an effort to take off one of my tower knobs I slightly bent the bolt on my tower. Any idea of a replacement piece or are there any tips or tricks to get this a bit straighter?

I'd replace. Not sure where to buy one though. What did you do? Hit knob with a hammer?

Knob was seized and I guess I had downward pressure while I was trying to wrench it off. I have the dealer looking for a part. Really just needing a temporary fix in the meantime.

try searching "rod ends" on www.mcmaster.com Looks like the "solid rod ends" and you will want Stainless.

Otherwise reach out to a dealership with that photo.
