Exact same happened to me on the drivers side vent. Barely touched it & the handle came apart just like that. I haven't gotten mine fixed yet, will when it next needs anything more serious. Sucks, though.

My "hulk" broke one of the fronts and two of the rears on my x5. He was barely 3 yrs old at the time. Dealer covered the front dash but refused the rear. Actually, correction, my wife broke one of the rears crawling over the center console to the front seat from the rear seat while on a rode trip.

My center vents had the same thing happen. No big deal as it was under warranty and they replaced and upgraded the vents. I do recall the SA saying that its a known issue and that I needed the new updated front vents.
