USB-C foam cushion spares?


I tried to replace the USB-C board on my MacBook Air 2019 (13”) but I noticed there are these thin “foam” cushions or brackets around the 2 USB connectors on the board.

Transferring them from the old board is impossible - they can’t be removed without drestroying them.

Where can I get spares? Or are there suggestions for alternative materials?

Thank you very much!

The best you can do is wedge some yarn into the gap. The foam pieces are not available as a spare.
