Dell XPS 15 9520 - Second NVMe - Heatsink and M2x2 Screw

I just bought a Dell XPS 15 9520.  I already have a brand new M.2 NVMe that I want to add as a second NVMe into my XPS. I have opened the laptop and discovered that there is not a second heatsink or a screw inside the laptop for adding a second NVMe drive.

Does Dell sell a heatsink and screw for the second NVMe slot?  If so, how do I go about ordering them?

Thank you.

I bought this one from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09CG2ZYM7 and it works just fine.

Just make sure you're buying the heatsink for the correct slot, as Dell may have installed the OEM drive in slot 1 or slot 2.

I should also note that there is no way to disable the either SSD in the BIOS, so if you install a second SSD you have to use both or remove the other drive if you only want to use one.

There's a thread on reddit which appears to solve this problem using a third party spare part:

You can also find it by searching for "ET2SH000600 04TW9C 4TW9C". HTH.
