JB WELD should do the trick!
That's how I repaired mine.

Re: Ugh I broke the handle on the cargo cover

To anyone in the Massachusetts area:

I have a brand new 2014 black cargo cover I'd let go for $75.

I don't have a box long enough for shipping, so I'd prefer to have someone come pick it up.

Re: Ugh I broke the handle on the cargo cover

Mine broke too. Crappy thin plastic, if you pull it up with enough force along with the screw too tight ends up breaking it.
Gonna try to see if it's covered by warranty, if not the glue it is.

Mine broke many miles again. Good old fashion super glue fixed it.

I can see it now: billet titanium cargo cover handles, CNC machined, with titanium nitride coating to increase hardness. This handle is Cargo Rated® for extreme cargo covering duty.

Limited edition with engraved machinists' autograph ("Signature Edition" exclusively for the Kickstarter backers), only $499.

I normally just superglue it back together. It happened to me too.

That's actually a great idea. Is it just me or does anyone else find it preposterous that customers need to engineer their own fixes to something that should have been engineered properly to begin with? The old Mercedes Benz montra of overengineering even the littlest things should apply to all car parts.

LOL.
Don't even get the older Audi guys started.
Google "team doorhandle" in relation to Audi.

Running joke for the last 20 years about the cheap-ass pot-metal door handles on older Audi vehicles.
