broken monovalve coil

ok, so I was trying to remove the monovalve from its housing and went a little too far, now the coil is detatched from its little leads to the posts (cant find the point where they broke from the coil) and it is no longer attatched to the metal plate...And the metal housing that sits aournd the coil has detatched from the plate as well... (next time i wont try to drive it out with a hammer and vise
Can I fix this little mess or do I need a new housing unit. where can i look for such a piece? and how much. right now i re-installed the broken unit to keep driving without loosing coolant, but didn't attatch the electrical leads back up...
That bugger was friggin stuck in there and all corroded too! But I was right in my diagnosis, the rubber diaphram was torn to shreds!
thanks for whatever help you can offer.
- Ben

It is a generic formula, from a text file that I use on other forums.

This is something you would get from a wrecker's yard, since a new "kit" gets it up to par with smaller effort/cost. Check here for example:

or here:

There is a little, ~1/4" fitting at the bottom of the valve; for the extra hose (little) that goes to the windshield heater. Look carefully at the two pictures Hunter cited.

Yes, the default is open, exactly right. MB designed it this way so if something fails you will have heat, in case the defroster is needed to clear the windshield.
