E-M1 small parts falling off

There are two parts on my E-M1 that I have literally taped on with electric tape because they keep falling off.

  1. The Hot Shoe cover that according to the Olympus web site is required for the camera to be weather proof
  2. If you point the lens towards you and look at the camera, just to the right of the word Olympus on the front of the camera, above the lens, there is a small round metal piece. I don't know what it is for but I'm afraid to lose it for fear, it too, may compromise the weather proofing if not present.

Has anyone else experienced these problems?
