Does it say "N O" normally open or "N C" normally closed?
Did you test that one with an ohmeter to be sure that's at fault?
It is called a Cherry switch and can be sourced at an electronics shop.

I looked and I have a few, bottom spade is common, and the other two are for NO or NC. $43 on ebay is robbery. Pm me your address and I'll mail you one, n/c. Pay it forward to someone someday.

Here's a close up of a Cherry switch. Yours is likely NO as the top connector is missing. I would still test it with an ohm meter to be sure it's faulty. Also have a look to see if it is not just a wee bit out of adjustment. If it became loose and moved a tiny bit it would break contact.
The other way is to remove the wires and try to start and shift if it's NO switch. If it's a NC switch remove both wires and put a small jumper wire in the 2 wires and try to start and shift.
Is the problem starting or shifting?
