The hinge situation is more interesting.
If they were just MISSING, and never installed during manufacture, should immediately be replaced. My '99 2.3 came without the 'plumbing' behind the dash to take air to the far right vent. Nothing ever came out of that vent, and when service department looked, an entire plastic assembly had NOT been installed. Naturally they did not have one in stock, but got one immediately and fixed the problem. Hinges should be the same, exactly.
And even if they were there, and broke off or worked loose somehow, still a warranty issue.
Good luck, though you shouldn't need luck on this one.
