Broken Lower Shift Bowl - Need Advice

The slot where I should connect the shift indicator cable to the lower shift bowl is damaged. The plastic slot (as seen in attached picture) has been broken. The lower shift bowl GM part number is #7836437 but have not been able to locate one anywhere. I'm also not sure I'm up to pulling the whole column apart.

So my question: Will I be able to connect the shift indicator to what I have left by hacking it together, or are there any creative suggestions for what I should do to fix this or make it work?

My truck is apart so I'm not able to easily experiment with solutions. I know I can get a replacement column ( or but am wondering if I can make this one work.
