X220: space bar issue due to broken centre bumper



While cleaning the keyboard and lifting up the space bar the centre white bumper was broken. See photo (sorry for the poor quality):



Now the space bar will only work if pressed directly in the middle and with extra 'force'. What should I do? I could try supergluing the disconnected pieces...if this does not work is my only other option to order some kind of replacement piece?

I'd just get a replacement keyboard, they aren't that expensive. Plenty on ebay.
