I did also find out, by trial and error, that you can replace that broken gear with another one from the same side of the car, other door. it's messy and you have to cut a couple of harmless slots in the old and new gears to take the cable off the old one and wind it on the new one. It's tricky and pretty greasy, lol. However, it does work. Take photos of your work before and after so that you remember just how it reassembles.
Also, you have to drill out the rivet holding the gear in the case, but that is no big deal. I made up a fastener/washer arrangement to hold the gear back in, but I don't think you really need to do that, the case cover holding the gear in if you put a band around the reassembled case.
