Rats nest solenoid filters

I'm in need of a few of the filters that go on a few of the rats nest solenoids. Local Mazda said they aren't a part that can be ordered with buying the entire solenoid. Does anyone know if there is somewhere to source them aside from other members that have gone single? I'm not opposed to seeing up a WTB thread, just wanted to check if they're were any new options first.
Thanks
Nick

Been a while since I really looked but IIRC the filter media is just foam. Could you just clean or replace it?

I haven't looked into dismantling, but I have two that are completely missing what I imagine would be the cap to the filter with the little X that holds the media in place, but I do have one that I could try to rebuild. I'll check it out this evening and get some pictures. Probably still need at least one other as I have no idea how to secure the filter media with it that X.
thanks for the suggestion.

If it comes to that, I imagine a little silicone caulk around the inner edge would keep the foam in place w/o the plastic.
