Broken vent controls....

I posted a few weeks ago when I didn't know why my vents weren't working but now I think I've figured it out. When I move my vent selector I only get air either on the floor or through the defrost. I took my dash apart yesterday and found that two of the little plastic "L" shaped connectors that connect the actuator arms to the vents are broken off at the vent. Does anyone know how to repair this? Can I do it without replacing the whole vent system? I posted a pic to try to show what I'm talking about.

You may be able to glue it back on temporarily with JB Cold Weld or some epoxy until you can find a replacement junkyard actuator.
