Component required but deleted

I created a new component “Front page”, set it as required and added key FRONTPAGE. After a while, I deleted it. Now when I try to submit an article, in the last step, there is information that I have to submit a “Front page” file. But the category doesn’t exist, and I cannot choose one.

Adding this component again didn’t work.
I couldn’t add FRONTPAGE key again, because it wasn’t deleted together with the component type.
Restoring defaults didn’t work, too.

Deleting components probably doesn’t work as it should.

What can I do without direct access to the database or cli?
