Default where are these bearings by Philips?

I have with much pleasure a Shanling t 100 cd player, wich I've made some improvements.
My little problem today's (togheter, to knowledge of your language...) is this:

This player use a Philips Vam 12.01 mechanic that must be attached below, on the aluminium base.
On this base there are 4 plastic,trasparent bearings, that must to absorb some vibrations of motors.
My damned bearings are all broken.
So, there is one expert in the our old Earth, that could be so kind to give me an email address, where can to buy them?

Philips' : nothing. (doesn't to replay. to my question..)
Shanling's : nothing ( egual/idem... )

The principal difficulty to find these spare objects,is (I suppose) because these are so insignificant , so too cheaps & no one (seems) having to interest for to sell them.

All the best

welcome to the greatest diy audio forum in the world
as a diyer we like to make things our self, so why not make those rubber bearings? there are plenty of silicone rubber- neoprene hoses, washers, sheets.

I've rebuilt totally damaged CD tray to a top loading one here, no spares for sale for new tray I'm sure

I think you mean these... unless somebody has some spare I think the best option is to buy a scrap machine that uses the CDM12.1 or CDM 12.4 or VAM mechs etc.

if those only serve to islotale the mechanism from vibrations I'd go for a DIY solution, as the shock absorbers in most CD players typically are pretty useless.
