    It's not the one that holds the triangle it's the flap on the boot that hides the triangle.

    Hi,
    I just got a B6 avant (2005) 2 months ago and had the same problem. I'm in the US and dealer price for this item is $30. I didn't want to pay that much money for an item that was just going to break again, so I created a mold from the OEM part. Before casting, I epoxied the broken tab back together and added material at the break point to beef up the rigidity in the weak spot. Then I used fiberglass reinforced polyurethane for the material to further increase the stregth of the part overall. Not sure what replacement cost is in the UK but PM me if you're interested in this improved part. See pics below. In the side view you can see the larger radius from the larger radius where the weak OEM part snaps.
