2017 RAD MINI Stem Slightly Loose at Folding Joint

I have a 2017 Rad Mini. The Stem has some slight movement coming from the actual stem fold joint. All the other Stem adjustments have been done and everything is tight.
I took out the bolt/nut, which is stainless and shows no wear. I believe the housing that the bolt rides in is slightly worn?, just enough to bother me when I ride. Does anyone know if the stem parts are available?
I don't really see any way to fix it other than a new part?
I've included a picture and circled the part where I can feel and see slight movement
Thanks,
Tom

I've had that problem on another stem from a different bike. I cut out a piece of soda pop can and shimmed the bolt. EVentually, I replaced the stem for one with a better latch.
