I doubt you'll find replacement "caps" anywhere. Once the cap is removed the integrity of the LNB is suspect, so replacing the full LNB assembly is the recommended solution.

What type of dish do you have? You can find replacement LNBs at http://www.solidsignal.com

HD DVRs: HR44 + AM21; HR24
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver
Mobile Devices: Nomad

I have a dual LNB. The feed horn has an o ring and as long as I lubricate it should keep water out and not have any affect on its operation. It currently works fine.

Dont know where you can just get the cap.

Just as a reminder, there are different manufactures as well so all the caps are not the same.
