We have 3 of these panels and all of them have suffered from this problem. I did get some encoders from BEI when this first happened but at $500 each it seemed like a lot of money for a bit of foam!
I looked at various alternatives for fixing the trackballs where the foam crumbled away and the best method was to use a beta SP cleaning roller that had been cut in half!

Does anyone have a source for the little foam tires on the encoder shafts of
the 888 DaVinci trackball assemblies?

A picture of what I am looking for is here:
