Any chance of repairing my broken left shifter? I.e. are replacement parts readily available from SRAM?
Don't quite know how to explain this - the tapered hole where the barrel at the end of the derailleur cable is supposed to sit, broke off, and now exists more as a rounded edge. As a result the cable will tend to spring out from where it's supposed to sit... Can i just replace the red plastic wheel thingy and off we go?
Any other solutions?
This is the new 2010 style shifter with alternate cable routing. Pretty new, this is only the second cable installment...
it also sounds like you may be refering to the groove the cable housing sits in on the body of the lever itself, and not a part of the shift mechanisim?

Here you go:
And just like I said, there are no parts of the shifting mechanism listed - only brake and shift levers, band clamp, brake hoods, a spring and some trivial screws. There is NOTHING to repair the shift mechanism.

I can't directly answer the question, but I did ask a pro-SRAM shop owner about it yesterday. He said that he couldn't order the shifter guts from his supplier. I wouldn't necessarily take that answer as authoritative that it can't be done, but it doesn't sound good.
The shop owner said that the SRAM rep would occasionally give him small parts bags containing screws, etc. Whenever they had an issue with a SRAM part, SRAM would warranty it promptly, and he said they would freqently send out a replacement to the shop the same day, in advance of receiving the defective item. He characterized their support as fantastic and problems with the equipment minimal.
better still. SRAM! CHANGE THE DESIGN, IMPROVE YOUR MATERIALS!
I just called SRAM in Chicago, IL to verify.
The original SRAM Force and Rival version levers will break.
The "Zero Loss" 2008 RED version does not have this problem.
The "Zero Loss" 2012 RED version does not have this problem.
The newer 2012 SRAM Force "Zero Loss" version does not have this problem.
SRAM only covers parts sold at a bike shop, for 2 years, with receipt.
Shimano Dura Ace and XTR only parts, are covered for 3 years, from anyone. New or used.
easy operation DIY, just need to be careful. I don't remember where I get the piece from... probably some crashed shifters from the bike shop.
