Drop side latches at bottom are broken, side wont stay up without zip ties or some other thing holding it together.
Want to know if replacement parts can be ordered for anything like this or if I need to get a new one (we are about 6 mo away from not needing it) or if I should just buy brackets and screw them to the crib myself

In most cases, you can drive without that part in place and see very little difference in engine temp. Your options are, to buy a new dealer part (expensive), find one in a scrapyard that's intact, or get creative and repair the one you have using tin plate, screws and or pop rivets. Zip ties should not be used as the part will flap around as you drive. Air exerts lots of pressure against it and though it looks fine when standing still, it's far different when in motion. Using screws, you can put a flat washer under the head anywhere the hole in the plastic has become too large for the original screw. You can also use self tapping screws next to any fasteners that have failed, but always make sure they aren't long enough to damage anything on the other side of where they are screwed in (lines, wires or the radiator itself).
at the bottom of the bag, there is a zip tie around the plastic part that turns & snaps on to the exhaust hole of the vac. also take a flat screwdriver & pull up the rubber under the zip tie...all the way around, like u would take a bike tire off a rim . then pull the bag holder/tube thru the bottom, then vise versa, when u put it back on.
You need to use VagCom (the Audi diagnostic software - available for free at www.ross-tech.com, and you'll need to buy a cable from eBay), and you can find out which bag is tripping the light. If you have side bags in the front seats, chances are it's one of those - moving the seat too far back or down can strain the connector under the seat and cause it to open just enough to trip the light (happens on the Audi A4 all the time - mine happened three times before I fixed it for good). Once you know which bag it is, you can fix it. If it's one of the seat bags, zip tie the connector tightly to hold it together. Under the seat, the airbag has its own separate connector, and it's yellow (by law, all airbag connectors are yellow). Zip-tie it tightly without pinching any wires, then turn off the light. You should be good to go after that.
honest answer: take super heavy duty zip ties and tie the drop side in place in like 8 places to be sure it will stay put.
i did it with my crib to be safe when simplicity recalled theirs for rail issues, i would start with trying to get a hold of a person st simplicity for children your crib may be one of the ones recalled for rail failure issues then they would send you parts free
they should also be able to help you find out if the crib is theirs or not too
you should under the crib for a sticker with numbers, usually the model number / serial number and date of manufacture if you come up with a model number type it into a search engine online if manufacture name not on that label to find out who makes it, then contact them for pieces
