Does anyone have the window switch holder thing? I just need one because the one I have now the corner is broken and the switch keeps falling. Itís annoying because when it falls you need to take off the shifter boot to retrieve it.

I have perhaps two silly questions.

Is the part NLA? It was inexpensive enough.

Could you repair or restore the corner with, say, a metal-filled epoxy?

If it were my car, I would order a replacement, as it is inexpensive and will permanently go out of stock some day. I believe it also made of plastic, a material that rarely if every improves with age.

The first three hits on the part number using duckduckgo are to three firms that claim it is in stock, ships in four days or they have 4 left in stock.
