when I broke one I made the decision that I would not worry too much about future replacement and got my hot melt gluegun heated up. I held the broken one in place and liberally applied the hot glue around the bottom of the pin. It worked fine and is still ok a couple of years later.

I actually want to sell the heatsink on so would like to replace the broken pushpin.I know that the retaining bracket cold be held in by a nut and bolt but the buyer may not be aware and so a complete heatsink and retaining setup is preferable.
Also I do not have a glue gun nor know anybody who does.
Thanks.

It might be good depending where you brought the cooler from ask them to see if they can send you the replacement pushpins?
