Can I get a replacement locking lever for the retention module or is this locking lever built into the mobo.  What would you suggest?

As an experiment on an old board, I've tried removing one of these and they are firmly attached to the pins on the motherboard. When I finally removed it I managed to break half the pins. This can't be replaced.

That is what I thought, but just had to make sure prior to letting my customer hear the bad news - thank you!

I thought you meant the socket, I need to revise my earlier post.

If its the lever itself and it is a metal one(not plastic, they won't come out), it can be pulled out if you can get hold of the broken end. It needs to be worked back and forth as there are bends in the metal that are used for levering the socket.
Here is a pic of the removed lever.
