94 S320 rear window problems

94 S320. both rear windows broke on the same day and at the same time. dis-assembled to find broken plastic housings (where the cable ends meet and are retained) on both sides.

ordered parts from dealer, they came in today and aren't what i'm needing.

the part that arrived (which is attatched to the part on my car which is broken) was just the square-shaped bushing that glides in the channel at the bottom of the window. per them, thats the part that always breaks. they informed me that i'd have to buy the regulator(s) to get the part(s) i need.

my questions -

1. is the cable-retaining plastic part (that sandwiches around the cable ends) available separate from the regulator from an aftermarket source?

2. is the part that broke on my car not the "normal one that breaks"? (i have a problem with 'mercedes' and 'normally breaks' in the same sentence, but anyway ...)

* i did a forum search prior to this post as i hate redundancy as much as the next guy. i saw plenty that told me mercedes have window 'issues', but nothing (at least in the time i spent) that answered my question. the posts regarding 'plastic jaw' replacement got me close, as originally i thought the part that had broken on my car was the 'plastic jaw'.

thanks in advance for any feedback.
