Shimano road pedals

I've been given a pair of Shimano PD-R540 pedals. They're usable, although there's play in the bearings. I've stripped one down, cleaned, greased and reassembled but can't get rid of the play. They're built with a spindle/bearing cartridge in one piece which makes me think they're meant to be replaceable, but I can't find anywhere that sells them. What do we do these days, just bin 'em and buy new pedals?

It's normally wear to the threaded plastic shell of the axle that causes the play - no replacement parts available that I know of.

You can of course pick up a new pair for around £26 inc cleats - seeing as cleats retail at £18 the pedals cost £8!
