How can I replace the foam bar of Brother KX 350 knitting machine?

My Brother KX 350 knitting machine needs a new foam bar, that has a piece of fabric on each side, replaced. I can order a new one, but have no clue as to how to get the old one out and put in the new one. If you can advise me, I would be grateful.
Thanks,
Ruth

I recently bought a KX-350 and there is no sponge bar in the channel [ under the blue strip with the numbers on it,] or is it someplace else ? one of these previous comment mentioned taking out the needles and replacing with headliner fabric. if so it must be different than the Metal brother knitting machines. Thanks for any help!!!

I have a KX-350 given to me years ago and just recently taken out of storage. I have found the following websites to order supplies, etc.

I also seem to need to replace this double sided foam strip. I am wondering what the 'headliner' material, of which you spoke, is made of/looks like?

I have replaced the sponge with a piece of headliner material and gotten fine results. I had to remove all the needles and the old sponge/fabric strips. You will need to cut the headliner material to the width of the old fabric strips. Probably slightly less than 3/8". Slide the headliner strip in and replace the needles. The headliner material is like what is used in the roof of cars. It is available at most fabric stores.
