There are probably landfills full of them. Perhaps you can get the part from someone’s broken one. Look on flea bay.

I have my dealer contact Harman to find out if they still have this spare part.
That thing is smaller and lighter than a postage stamp.
Most probably costing a small fortune - if they still have it...
Somehow I do find this disturbing, building a 'bullet-prove' unit with such a fragile part at the most used mechanical interface!
As for 'silicon-oil'... I'm very weary to follow this suggestion.
Why? The property of this stuff is marvelous - solong it will not 'creap' into any electronic components, where it creates nasty contact issues.
I know, as I worked in cradle-relay assembly way back then, were this stuff was to be avoided like poison!
Meanwhile I now put ½ a drop of SME supplied tt spindle oil on each guide rod - and using clear (Patex) contact glue to stick this broken plastic spider-washer together.
Presently my fix seems to work.
For how long is written on another page.
Thanks for your suggestions,
