Do a search for "zip tie trick" or maybe just "zip tie". Some guys have bought some time using a nylon wire tie depending on how badly the nylon piece has broken. The broken piece is not sold seperately, the only way to get it is to replace the regulator assembly. I swear BMW engineered this part to fail, ensuring a steady stream of service revenue, LOL.
