Can i replace the legs on a 055CX pro 4 carbon fiber tripod. One of my legs came right out the tripod

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your camera?

Manfrotto

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your camera?

I managed to get the shims back in, but i have to be careful when i extend the leg so it does;t fall out

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Can i just buy new shims?
