Default Here's mine for reference

I'm just adding a photo of mine here for reference, as I'm testing the new MJ part when it arrives in the post. It looks from the photo that the 'back tab' has broken off (as expected).

**Update** - received the new improved replacement part, cheers MJ - it does look very professional and dare I say it better-looking than the original OEM white thing.
My current unit is indeed broken and when turned around 180 degrees, it revealed the previous owner's attempt at fixing with a length of black plastic tape.
I plan on trying to fit this tomorrow if the weather holds out for me.

I got mine, and it looks fantastic. Granted, I haven't actually done anything with it yet. It got added to the pile of stuff to put on my car when I have time.
