Angry Help! 4.5 Guru, oil rail broke!!!

I found that through looking in the oil filler cap that the first lobe was getting no oil from the rail.
I posted the problem and was advised to just pull the oil rail right out to clean it, no screws or anything.
So I did so.
What happened Now is that the stupid plastic tabs that attatch the oil rail to the cam bearing towers all pretty much cracked when I removed the rail.!!!!!
I found the offending piece of debri but just shot it back into the rail with the cleaner. Given that the rail is probably useless now, can I get a new one?!?! I'll check Partshop
Can the other one be removed without destroying the tabs????
What did I do wrong?
