V1 and 18.5mm lens: not latching firmly

I've stepped back from my Nikon 1 system since putting a Z50 in my bag, but I have kept my V1, my 18.5 mm, and an FT1 adaptor. Recently I've noticed that the V1 and lens aren't securely locking together when attached. The latch engages, but if I twist the lens at all (like when putting on the lens shade), the lens decouples easily, without pressing the lens release button. Has anyone encountered anything similar and if so, can you suggest a simple fix?

(I'm not sure if the problem is on the body side or the lens side; however, I haven't noticed the problem when using the FT1, so I ma guessing it is the lens.)
