Q6600 Heatsink Broken

I took off my Q6600 heatsink to reapply thermal paste as my temps were really high, then when I tried to put the heatsink back on, 2 of the clips wouldn't snap on properly, and apparently I used excessive force while trying because on one of them the white plastic bits broke off, so its just the black metal bit left. Is there anything I can do or is a new heatsink the only option? Help would be greatly appreciated.
