Default BMW E36 seat motor

I pulled the seats in my E36 to replace a plastic gear (typical problem for e36s similar to Porsche speedo gears). The motor was missing the little key shown in the picture which goes between the motor and the gear.

Can these be sourced if so what is the name of the item. Any reason I couldn't just make on with a nail or something similar?

Thanks.

Default

interestingly enough i found one on ebay someone was selling...searched for PN but came up empty handed looking though catalog pictures. i considered trying to make one using a woodruff key (just my thoughts on the need for pretty strong piece of metal)...but as i have located one...repair and move on.
