MB D12 Battery Grip joystick

Not having a lot of luck with my D800 parts. So far the camera itself has survived the tender loving care I have given it. After the battery failures reported earlier, I now find that the battery grip joystick has cracked and split in two, just through normal use - it most definitely has not been bashed. It still works, but not diagonally very well, and remains attached to the rubber dust seal, which will be of little use now. Initial reaction was to check the Internet to see if this was unique but to my surprise the MB-D11 for the D7000 has a similar problem. As usual I will see what reaction I get from Nikon, but at 4k clicks and less that 10 months old this is well below normal wear and tear on pro kit.

I am only waiting for the metering selector switch to fail now as this required brute force to move it when I got the camera. Again reading up there were comments that it would ease with use but during a bitterly cold winter and due to a stupid design where only half of the ring switch (partly recessed due to the new shaping of the D800) is accessible with 2 fingers it was impossible to turn. Attempting to roll it with a dry and cold thumb or finger required so much force that I thought I would break it, and most times was unsuccessful. (The D300s ring switch is fully accessible and usable even in the cold).
