Question 82 300SD Foot flap problem

Has any one out there replaced the actual foot flaps. The arms that actuate the flaps are broken off on the top and I am at a loss as to my options. I heard there is a OEM kit to replace the arms and flaps. Anyone have any ideas......

I had exactly the same poblem with my 82 300SD. I bought the repair kit which included all the plastic gears, however it looked like it was going to be a major pain to replace the broken flap so i drilled a hole thru the broken piece in to the flap and epoxied in a piece of steel wire. Has been working fine for years. I would also recommend changing all the vacuum cannister diaphragms while you have the dash apart, I didnt and was back in the dash 6 months later.
