Question: how much should I expect to pay to repair

my convertible SLK230 broke a spring putting the top down. It has two hooks on a spring and one came off that pulls the side trianglular cover when the top is down. It gets stuck now when I try to put the top up or down. The one on the other side is ok it's folds up nicely.
