AC Vent Chrome Peices ?

I'm driving this morning, and I notice one of the ac vents chrome peices is gone on my center console. Any ideas on where I can find those ? I've looked everywhere and all I can find is the whole center console vent!
I need some help! Thank you.

I lost my passenger side one. I could not find anywhere that had just the chrome trim piece. I ended up buying a used passenger side vent. Good luck in your search.

When I bought my GTI it was missing the chrome piece and I didn't notice because it was dark outside. The dealer replaced it for me, but they had to order the entire vent piece. I don't think anyone sells just the chrome.

It is a pretty common problem, if you are under warranty, I would try to get the dealer to replace it for free

I just had my dealer replace the rear vent grill for free under warranty. At some point it must have been knocked off by someone in the rear.

Same thing here, noticed it was gone, asked them about it and they ordered a whole new vent. It wasn't even an issue.

Nope... Very common loss and the whole vent is the only replacement I've ever seen. I lost one to an interior detail I didn't notice until 2 days later.

My next service I will ask for a replacement as I have the crazy 100K warranty that covers everything but maintenance parts

ah yes.....talked to the local VW dealer, sent photos....no dice. Only comes with complete vent. I started hitting the web, and found a complete vent set out of Texas. Less than $40 with shipping, so I have the 2 I need....plus 2 extra's. Also missing the trim tops on the driver side controls......those are on the "slow boat from China" but less than $10.
Believe me, I will be watching these items very closely....

Unbelievable. The chrome center on my center vent disappeared this morning. I found this thread while searching to buy one. No dice.
