Replacement AC/Heater vent handle?

It was kinda chilly today so I went hulkmode on my driver's side air vent, and ended up pulling the handle/knob thing right out of the vent. I can clearly see that the underside of the handle has four clips that attach to a little plastic assembly, but two of my clips are broken clean off.

Anyway, is it possible to get a replacement handle for my aircon vent outside of finding a junkyard Limited GC and tearing into it?

I'm terrible at words, so here's a picture of the piece I want. I don't want to buy the whole assembly because I'm broke as HELL and for $65 I'd rather just let my left arm stay cold every time I drive forever.

NAH, F THAT

I was able to reassemble it with a leatherman and a pen, but since the retainer clips on the adjuster were busted on one side it quickly fell back apart. I'm confident that I can get it back together without serious disassembly if I can just get a fixed fiddly piece.

The clips are too small to 3D-print, but I may try to work some redneckgineering to get it fixed.

Any suggestions on where to get one of these motherfudgers, or should I start supergluing plastic bits to my adjuster knob.
