Sunroof install question

I recently picked up this used sunroof cassette. I need some feedback on if this broken piece towards the front of the sunroof (pictured) will affect the installation or operation of the new sunroof cassette. I know the sunroof motor bolts up in this area too, but I don't believe anything bolts there

Im pretty sure a bolt does go there and its a kind of important one because thats right where the motor is and needs to be stable

There are ways you can fix items like this. Do a search on repairing plastic broken tabs if your willing to go that far.
I would......

It involves drilling very small holes in the surrounding area. And using them for strength of epoxy filler to adhere giving the new part of tab a new support. It sounds more complicated than it is.
