    They are easy to replace and just as easy to repair. I used super glue and 2 strips of card either side of the snapped bottom arm.
    To remove; pull off the strip of dash trim bellow the vent then undo the torx screws, then you can carefully remove the vent. Using a small flat screwdriver you can dismantle the vent by uncliping until your left with the set of slats.

    I must have been editing my post as you posted. The dash trim strip just pops off with a tug. The center vents are clipped to the tid/gid surround.

    It seems to be a common problem. For some daft reason they're made with a week point in the bottom arm. Here's a pic of my repaire that's held strong for over a year even with my 4year old playing with them
