These are bespoke items as far as I know - you'll need to fit either a used one or get a new one. Not all car parts - especially body fittings and the like are available on the after-market. Wiper blades may be the exception. Reason being it's not cost-effective to produce this type of component which rarely need replacing.

A new one from the dealer (part: 6429ET) is about £48 inc. UK VAT

A seller here has one with blade for £15

No worries - I suspected theses cheap ones are just that - junk and you'll end up paying again and again.
