Piano, Organ, and Keyboard/sustain pedal

Question
Hi, I read a question about a Young Chang sustain pedal breaking and that is exactly what is going on with my Young Chang piano which is about 20 years old. I heard/felt a funny thing while playing and the sustain pedal suddenly was broken. When I took it apart to find the problem, the pin with the white plastic top was no longer holding the rod. We live in a small town. I'm not sure who to call to repair and was wondering if I could buy a part online to fix it myself? Thanks for any advice!
