I might be talking total nonsense here, if so, my apologies, but i'm almost certain i read something along these lines some years ago - and people ticking Lego off for not checking the build would still work with this changed piece.
Either way, contact Customer services as advised above, they should be able to sort it out. (Hopefully someone with a clearer memory than mine can recall what happened).
edit: huh, just found this searching google of all things...
