WTB: W126 Vacuum element(Pod) for Center Vent

Hi All,
As LA weather is warming up, i need to swap out my bad vacuum element that's in picture in 1989 420SEL.
I was able to take out glove box and what i show ...Element's top pink part was separate from it's base (pink with black) with spring in it sticking out. No wonder i there was no blow from center (Is it for center vents or defrost or something else?)
If you have this pod let me know how much with SH. Also if anybody here can help me figure out how to separate it from it's base without taking dash out that will be great...(pictures will help great deal)

You can buy a new one for relatively cheap. If you buy a used one it'll be just as old and brittle as yours. If it requires removing the dash, I don't think you'd want to do that job twice!

Agree. But i can't find part number for circled pod. Mine has label on other side and can not see. Online stores that i looked at..pictures shown are like pod that is under circled pod so can't bite a bullet yet.
