    it will just break off again if you do glue it. You are probably better off buying a new one or waiting a couple of years and hope you stumble on a junker that you could switch parts off of.

    Yeah, glueing a post back on is pointless, it won't stay attached.
    Personally I'd probably file down where the post was and cut a channel into it, then glue in a small, suitably diametered piece of styrene rod.

    Yeah, I was gonna suggest driling a hole where the peg was and gluing a pin (metal or plastic) or something in there to replace the broken one.

    If you felt like trying something fancy, you could embed some strong magnets in the plastic to hold things together a bit in alt mode.
