BD drive spindle missing in Sony laptop

Specs: Windows Vista, Core 2 Duo/3GB

I have a sony laptop FW 390 which came along with Blu Ray Writer.
Recently the CD spindle(the black one in the center which a Disc Snaps on and rotates once inside the CD/DVD/BD Drive) in the tray gone missing.
I am pretty sure that it should have fall inside (when I took the CD it did not came outside) but when I shake the laptop there was no noise
When I showed the laptop in sony service center the executive said we should change the drive completely but that is costly
I want to know whether anyone faced such issue before? Can we replace only that spindle with some glue attached to it or should I go for complete replacement?

The spindle speeds are such that if the part is actually broken, I would not recommend trying to glue it. Any misalignment could be catastrophic.

Is the drive still under warranty?

No, the warranty period has been expired.
