My D300 CF Card Ejector has lost its little grey button. I can still get the CF cards out by carefully pushing the metal pin but would much prefer to get another button if possible.

My friendly Nikon Australia Service Centre tells me that Nikon don't carry this as a spare part. I don't believe I am the first person to need one - so is there anyone out there who has had the same problem and what was their solution please?

I thought that I had read on the Forum of such an issue some time ago but I've done a Nikoscope Search without success.

Added the next day - it obviously depends on who you talk to at Nikon. After failing with the Service Centre people, I got onto the Spare Parts people and they were happy to inform that there is such a spare part - VBA20001-1K201-481 for anyone who is interested. Unfortunately they are out of stock in Australia and as I'm leaving for Alaska in the next few days will try to get one from Nikon USA. Hopefully a happy ending!!!
