Throttle body plate broke opinions needed

So the part of the throttle body that holds the throttle cable broke off just a little piece of the plastic.
I would hate to spend 300-400 bucks for a new throttle body.
is there anything I can use to basically put something like jb weld maybe to
hold it down.
the red circle is the small part that broke off

I accelerated hard one time and it broke off. dunno why BMW uses plastic on this and their water pumps and other things. even cheap civics use metal for these parts.
