    I'm looking for the cover above the steering wheel that has a screw on each side. The one side as shown in the picture had the plastic clip break. Any suggestions on repairing or finding a used one would be appreciated.

    Thank you! Wow, after some investigating they only sell the carbon fiber ones at 405 pounds. I will continue my research and if anyone knows someone with the column shroud non carbon please PM me.

    Mine is broken as well, just trying to figure out if I want to spend $637+shipping for this part.

    That's a big omission :) I highly doubt the CF weave would match Tesla's.
