Post car kit component missing on s50

Hi, do anyone here know where i can get that little plastic ball which goes between the swival joint for the s50 car kit? I'm missing one and it's preventing me from installing in my next vehicle.

Any help would be great! thanks in advance!

I don't remember any plastic ball in the swivel joints, and I had them apart many times when I was installing the car dock in my car.
The ball in the joint should be metal with a small thimble shaped pressure sleeve that jams against it when you screw down the collars. It sits against a rubbery white silicone plug at each end of the tubular arm of the standard mount and the short AC vent mount flange.
Could the plastic thimble be the part you are missing? You should have an extra one in the kit included. It should be in the same plastic bag where the short vent mount flange came in.
I didn't think that the steel ball in the joints could come off from their mounts that easily.

TSS sells a lot of parts for the S50. You might give them a call.

I do know that some people on the forum have extra parts lying around and offer to send them to people if you pay the postage.

I have what you are looking for right here. It's not a ball though...it's more like an open ended metal sleeve covered in black plastic.

If you want it, send me a message and i will give you my address and you can send a self addressed padded envelope with some postage on it and i will throw it in a mailbox. It weighs next to nothing, btw.
