2005 Yukon XL. Does anyone know what part I need to replace a broken hatch cable? The hatch (liftgate?) handle is floppy like the cable is broken. I can't find the part number for this anywhere though.

Never mind. Got it all apart and there was a spring loose in the hatch area. Turns out that plastic boomerang piece came off (plastic broke). Shame on GM for using such a tiny plastic piece. Drilled a new screw in and it's holding for now...
