Looking for a couple of the linkages for the dash vents of my 07 gt. Local dealership said the part isn't available, only the vent assembly at $250 each. I'll add a picture as soon as I can figure how to do that. I may not have enough post.
Ford would never have sold those little pieces separately since the part would always be an assembly. I'm shocked at how much the vent costs but I assume that you went to your local dealer instead of looking online. Your best bet is a salvage yard or Ebay for a used one. An online Ford dealer like Tasca, FordPartsGiant, etc would be another good option if you wanted a brand new vent but you can expect to pay at least $100 online for one + shipping: Ducts for 2007 Ford Mustang | TascaParts.com
I'm guessing that those deformable tabs go into corresponding square holes, and at least one of the holes is mangled as well. Use the part as a template and fabricate something. I'd probably use some thin gauge steel sheet, cut a dog-bone shape, a hole on each end, bend to mimic the raised center then some short sheet metal screws/ glue to fasten it in place.
