    Can someone PLEASE tell me how to go about replacing these anti vibration balls. I have one that seems to be broken and it's causing the camera to tilt. Any help would be much appreciated!
    It's the rear ball with the locking pin attached.

    You can cut the bottom of the pin off to release it -- or attempt to remove it without breaking it like this. Some spares came in your Phantom box. Then, just insert the existing ball (if not damaged) or new ball into the top and bottom holes and slide the pin in from the top.

    Thanks for the quick response! Next question is do you have to remove the whole camera assembly to remove the pins just to replace the absorber balls?

    No. Just replace the damaged ball/pin.
