I 'googled' for replacements and came up with websites that stock Nikon replacement parts (both original and after market), but they are all located in United States. I knew it was not going to easy to find since, this part does not have part number unlike the BS-1 Flash Hotshoe cover. Furthermore, this part is no longer in use in newer models Nikon DSLR. Though I have no qualms about getting one online, but a replacement will cost me $5 USD and with shipping that is gonna cost me more than S$10. I then contacted Nikon Service Center (NSC) Singapore to enquire on a replacement. While awaiting reply from NSC, a few fellow Nikon users from forums suggested that I get it from a camera retailer in town; they stock and sell after-market replacements and will only cost me S$8, rather getting one from NSC which will cost me S$10. I decided to wait for NSC to give me a reply. I was delighted that NSC can provide me an original replacement at only S$5 (excl. GST)! NSC also reassured me that Nikon will continue to manufacture and provide replacement parts for discontinued models for 20 years.
That is what I call service! That is why I choose Nikon!
The Flash Sync Terminal cover is a small plastic cover that screws into terminal with 2 full turns.
I still cannot believe it came loose from just normal handling!
