How much room is there between the sled and the slide? Is there enough to bend a wire, like a wire coat hanger under there? I was thinking something along the lines of this.
I made an assumption on the location of the cable connector normally. Then hooking a wire around the cable on one end, then bending the other end around the metal at the end of the sled. That would take all the tension off from the plastic in the center, and transfer it to the metal instead. Where it shows attached to the cable in the drawing would be an approximation.
