Default Can't push trackball button anymore

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, can't seem to find if anyone's asked this before, so here goes...
I recently lost the trackball to my Curve 8300, so I ordered a new one, but by the time I got it I had lost the little shiny orange semi transparent sheet with a little disc in the middle that goes right behind the trackball and usually sticks to the inside of the phone. Without this tiny sheet you can't do the pushbutton action of the trackball.
I'm not sure what the heck that little thing is, or if it's possible to get a new one anywhere or if I can substitute it with something...it seems like maybe it's just a little piece of conducting material to link the back of the trackball to the phone.
In any case, I'm pretty screwed right now, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone even know what I'm talking about and know anything about it?

Thanks very much

I allows the ball to activate the switch behind it. Just about useless without it.
