Not sure if you can do it, even if that was the only problem. However, the clip most likely broke because the cable is frayed and got tangled up, forcing the clip to break. So just replacing the clip won't fix it, even if you can untangle the cable and get it to wind up/down, probably won't last very long because of the frayed cable. Best off replacing the whole regulator.

Unless you can install a whole new cable along with the clip. Didn't think of that till now. Actually have access to cables that would work and the tools needed to shank it too. Oh well, part cost me $91 at the dealership. Tischer has it for $72.
