If I found the correct part number for you, it looks to be about $40 online, FYI.

When I think of removing trim in that immediate area, I think of the "lego rear foglight mod" for free (I would use something else besides Legos, you can google around), or you can drop a nice sum for the Euro foglight switch module, replete with foglight icon, I bet ECS sells it. Unrelated, but couldn't help myself. Instructional video below.

I know what you mean. The dealer broke the left center vent's slider and replaced the whole vent assembly. Then the day after I got it back, the far passenger side vent slider came off. UGH!

I'm going to super glue it back on, hopefully I can get it back on there without getting it all over the place.

i thought about super glue as well. just don't wanna get it all over the place. plus i'll know it's super glued. won't feel good about it. they will replace it with no cost but it's just so irritating to have to go there for something so stupid that should not have happened.
well at least i'm not the only one. why are these pieces so cheaply made?! don't understand on a 40-45k car. it's not a ..............!
