    Hi there. A few weeks ago my girlfriend accidentally put her elbow through the passenger side air vent on my 1.8T sport and snapped one of the slats off. I still have all the bits that broke off and would like to know if anyone knows what glue I should use to try to reattach it. I was thinking super glue, but then I though that it might melt a lot of the plastic. Any suggestions?

    I was thinking that replacing it might be the better route, but I dont really know how to do it. Will I need to remove the entire dash section to get at the vent? I'm a bit of a newbie to all this, but I'm not afraid to get my hand dirty so long as I have a good idea what is involved.

    Contact vagparts.com, they're really friendly and seem to be able to get any part, however small.

    I got a new back seat pull from them - the plastic loop thing under the seats.

    Thanks for recommending them. I have a new vent on the way. Does anyone know what I will have to do to fit it?
