Wouldn't be surprised it's NLA - custom molded plastic body pieces are usually the first items to stop production when a model gets old enough - last time these cars were produced was 16 years ago... :-(

Well, 11-12 years if you count Skoda Superb and VW-China's Lingyu. But who's counting? 😜

I was too late to buy that one in the ebay listing. I am sure another one will crop up again, used or new.

In the meantime, would it be sufficient to drive without it, if I fashioned a cover for the cabin air filter?

Thanks. Just ordered one.

There is currently only one seller with that exact part number. While there are other cowls, they have minor differences in the part number, but ebay shows them anyway.

There must have been some variations in the cowls. The EB41 seems to be the latest version. I don't know if it makes any difference.
