Mein Auto: 2003 bmw 325i
Passenger door handle question

First of all, if I use the wrong name or terminology, I apologize. I have a 2003 BMW 325i that the front passenger door does not open from the outside. Looking at it today, I saw that the cable that goes from the handle to the lock portion that locks around the strike plate is disconnected from the plate. There is a barrel on the end of the cable and it looks to connect to a metal plate that has 3 holes in it, a larger one at the top, and 2 smaller ones at the bottom. I am thinking that there is a plastic clip that would go in the larger plate hole and secure the barrel end of the cable. Anyone know where I can find that clip, I have looked at RealOem.com and nothing comes up in the parts fiche. Am I on the right track that this is how the cable is secured?
Thanks for any assistance.
