Mira Excel B 2003 onwards cartridge spindle broken

In my infinite wisdom I whilst removing tiles from the shower I broke the black nylon spindle on the Mira excel shower unit which adjusts the temperature.

Mira have informed me that only the cartridge is a replacement part and not the spindle at a cost of £150 which is a little pricey for a piece of moulded nylon.

I can get a cartridge from shower spares for £100.

I have tried gluing it with Z-Poxy 30 minute epoxy resin but it failed as I was assembling it.

Does anyone have a spare U/S cartridge which I could strip to extract the spindle.

And any other suggestions are welcome.

It is the part to which the part number 5 (hub pack ) is screwed and it is housed within the cartridge.
The part I need is not identified on its own though.

The cartridge assembly (part 4) which houses the black spindle is supposedly a sealed item but I took it apart quite easily to remove the spindle and then tried to glue the two parts back together.
