Driver side rear window/regulator inventory and analysis for Repair

I bought this car 2 weeks ago and it needs work done on the driver side rear window/regulator/mechanical parts. I'm unsure as to which DIY I should look up because I'm trying to figure out all the missing parts I need for this repair. I have an attached video that I filmed to assist anyone willing to help me figure out the parts I need to get for a proper repair. I have consulted my service manual and searched the threads posted under the e39 bs and found little help with my specific issue. Any help with this problem is greatly appreciated and I hope this thread, if problem resolved helps others with similar issues. Thanks.

So with this kit and a single driver's rear window regulator I should be good to go? It looks like it will give me the slider and proper tools. If I buy a window regulator do they normally come wth all the cable attachments that connect to the rail?
