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.

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