    I have a 08 Taco double cab with an overhead console issue. The door on the garage door opener compartment's retaining clip is made from flimsy abs plastic. It is held in place by two screws. The retaining clip has broken in three places. Anyone have any ideas where I can obtain either a replacement or an easy fix? The stealership says the clip is not sold separately and that I would have to buy the entire console for $180. I have thought about superglue but want to fix it right. Any ideas would be helpful.Thx

    You accidentally posted this in the 1st gen forum, so you might want to ask a mod to move it to the 2nd gen forum so you get better responses...

    Just got a 3 d printer and have the same problem.. almost have a replacement made, just not quite right yet. That little clip is difficult to reconstruct. When I get it right I can send you one...
