Angry Glove Box Door Hinge

So here I am getting ready to put my S to sleep for a long winter's nap today. Took it for an oil change... Installed a new battery... Quick car-wash... When I got it back into the garage I went to put battery warranty slip in the glove box as service manager recommended and I snapped off the glove box door. (I may be too large for this car after all but that is a debate for another day) What looks like an inexpensive plastic hinge pretty much disintegrated leaving the door to fall into the passenger seat. To many broken pieces to attempt super glue I am afraid.

I called my local deal's parts dept and they quoted $169.05 for the entire rear console (84570-S2A-A01ZA). I can only imagine how much they'll charge to install. Given that this is the only way to secure anything in the car and it houses the trunk release, I do not want to go with a makeshift repair that does not at least restore to it's original integrity (dubious as it might be).

Has anyone else broken this small part? How did you resolve? Replace the whole console? Would appreciate some constructive advice.

Thanks in advance.

The labor to replace it will be expensive. I am in the process of DIY, all is good, except the three screws that hold the back of the console to the box. They are almost impossible to get to with the top partially down, impossible with the top fully down, and with the the top up it is a bit of serious contortions to do.

In 20/20 hindsight, I would have been ahead to pay the dealer labor.

I bought it online from it was a total $138 and change to the door.

Lots of luck.
