These break all the time; they are still available new from vw and then there is used but many used ones are broken, damaged or work out, as well. I had a similar problem with a 09G six speed and I ended up getting a used one and swapping good parts from both the old/used one, to come out with one that was functional.
I had this happen when all of the little pieces disintegrated. Salvaging what I could I was able to use Gorilla tape to make a repair which allows the the piece to function properly. This was 2 years ago and it’s still going strong Cheaper too
