    You can't replace the clip, but you can replace the lid. It's not that expensive, and all you do to get it off is squeeze the 2 legs together that act as he hinge. Then it just slides out.

    The clip broke on mine too which is a bugger because every time my car has been in for a service / mot or whatever I come back to find all my receipts and stuff all over the floor :wacko: Anyone any idea how much the lids cost?

    Mine cost £65 IIRC, probably less if you don't have leather though :salute:
