Small cut out piece D FA 15-30mm 2.8

Hi there,

I recently bought a Pentax D FA 15-30mm 2.8 lens, but it apparently has a small blemish in the area of the cut out:

A sample from PentaxReview:

My lens:

where the Tamron version of this lens has switches for image stabilization and maybe one other switch.

Was wondering if anyone knows what’s the part number of this small piece and if it can be changed by the user?

Thanks in advance for any information.

I am sorry but this piece is not sold retail and may be available directly from Ricoh as a repair or replacement part.
