Need source for door retaining latch and range vent

Today while washing my Escape I managed to break the "stick" that latches to the door to keep it open. I also managed to break a piece off of the exterior range vent. Both are crumbling due to UV, I guess. Can anyone give me a source for replacements? Thanks.

This one is what ETI is using now. It's UV resistant.

Has anyone retrofitted this vent to a 1st generation Escape (or as I like to call it, The Original Series)? I wonder if it fits.

Thanks Donna and Jim. Metal seems to be the way to go.

My trailer came with the Heng vent and I changed it to the Endura - it fit.

The one Donna has sourced is Stainless Steel.
I would use that one.

And use stainless steel screws to hold it on.

I also need to replace my vent. The endura has a 1 1/2 flange. When I contacted escape they replied the depth was 1 3/4 on my 2014 21. Has any one tried the Endura and do the mounting holes match up? I'm not drilling new holes.
