Extra Air Vent Parts?

Hello all. I was wondering if any of you have some broken center console air vents or parts lying around. I'm looking for the little plastic part that holds all the air vent flaps together so they all move up or down at the same time. The rear center console vent broke. I have taken it apart and everything else is fine except for that part. I'd hate to buy a new one since that's all that's wrong with it. Please look at picture and let me know if any one can help. If not, it looks like I will be buying a new vent. Thanks in advance.Click image for larger version

Buy a new vent, or get creative with epoxy cement.

Seems like such a waste to buy a new vent when this little part is all it needs, but I guess it is what it is. I have tried crazy glue, cement for plastic, even tried melting some plastic to try fusing it together. No luck.

This is only the beginning of the deterioration of plastic parts. Hope they are still available.
