I've only gotten this far in the thread so far. Please forgive redundancy if the repair has already been done.

Baking soda and Super Glue combined should work just fine. Sprinkle the joint with the powder and then drip Super Glue onto the damaged area. Scoring the surfaces with sand paper should help. In years past, this technique worked on my damaged Honda F2 instrument cluster mounting tabs.

Plastic welding with similar plastic will work, too.

Cheers
