Default 2001 S80 Dashboard Defroster Vents

My 2001 S80 dashboard defroster vents have cracked to the point that they have totally fallen off. My local dealer wants ~$2,000 to replace the entire dashboard and states that there are no replacement parts.

Are replacement 'inserts' available? If anyone else has had this problem and found a way to fix it, please let me know. Thanks.
