Hello Jason, The cover part number would be 4055345351. Just a heads up though, labeling is not supplied on the replacement cover and the cost of the replacement cover may be close to, or exceed, the cost of a new device. You may want to consider buying a new device and use the new cover on the existing device. Warm regards, Schneider Electric Customer Care
