Repair Pantry End Cap

I am not sure if this is the correct forum but this has been a neverending battle that I need help with. Both left and right pantry end caps which connect the sliding drawer are broken off. For reference, it is the plastic tab that holds the sliding drawer in place and is visible at 1:07 within this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvqM2MrCNyo

The crack is horizontal at the base and is a clean crack which I have used monster and superglue which have temporarily worked. Should I try an epoxy? The glue would hold the plastic tab in place but then would loosen when I try to reattach the drawer. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I've tried battling with plastic appliance parts, and find it better to replace the component rather than fixing them. This seems to be a pretty straight forward replacement. For $22 plus shipping, it may be a longer term fix.

Gluing small plastic parts never works, there's not enough surface to make the glue hold. Even the original plastic wasn't strong enough for the job.

You are right. I hate to replace the part over a small broken piece but that seems to be the better approach. I think I found the correct part but I am not sure because there are interchangeable parts from different manufacturers:
