When I had a similar issue with a D3 the cost of the part was UK £1,000 (including 20% tax) so not economic.

The scratch was tiny and extremely difficult to get to show on an image. How serious - or negligible is your scratch?

I sold the camera with full disclosure at a small discount about a year ago. Since then second hand value has fallen to less than I sold it for.

The new owner recently told me he has yet to get the scratch to show in an image so he is happy

Nikon not unreasonably want there cameras to be perfect.

I would get the camera back not repaired and see if the scratch shows in the sort of images you take.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
