Shifter snapped in half!

Shifting into fourth gear and shifter snapped. Took apart the console and metal rod snapped right down the middle.

What are my options here? Where can I purchase part and is it an easy DIY?

Thanks!

Early cars have a known weak lever arm. If it's hex in cross section, it's the weak version, round is the stronger, fixed version. It's covered elsewhere on this board. Lotus may replace it under service bulletin.

2005 Elise.

No pics now, but essentially the metal rod that runs down snapped in half about half the way down.
