    So I took out my air vents today to repair my touchscreen and all three of the air vents broke - so I'm in the market for a new used set. Does anyone have a complete set of air vents they'd be willing to part with? So long as they are not completely trashed, I don't really care what color they are. All of the ones I find on eBay are in bad shape and cost nearly $200 for a complete set.

    Start calling around to wrecking yards, or glue or melt your broken clips on existing ones back into place...

    Choices are: $$$ for new, $$ for ebay (because they know what new ones go for), $ for a pick your part recycling yard, or patch yours back together.
    Since new vents and a tailgate trim panel list for more than I paid for my 2006, I patched mine. I scuffed the inside of the vent pieces, then used a soldering gun to melt / embed a piece of metal window screen as reinforcement. Then generous application of hot glue. It's a 15 year old car- ain't bothered much by a cracked bit of plastic here or there.
