And now....the cheap way (in case you're interested)
I had the same problem a couple of years ago. Being stoney broke back then (erm...no change there then) I took the interior panelling off and fixed the broken areas myself. This will sound ugly but I used fibreglass cloth. Two years later and it's still working perfectly.

I actually found about three breaks in the plastic panel so it took me a few hours to fix 'em all. My interior trim is lightish grey and I managed to find something very close to that colour in the loacl Spotlight store (you know, the store the wimmin disappear into when looking for dress fabric and when you go in after 'em an hour later you realise what hell is really like).

I had looked at getting the EXACT material from an auto upholsterer but it would have cost an arm and a leg.

I just copied the positioning of the old trim and although the whole process took a couple of days I was delighted with the result. Quite honestly you can't tell that it's any different to original.
