Default Drivers door handle

HI guys,
I got my a daughter a 2004 Mini S and am having a problem with the inside driver's side handle. It will not open the door! I took the panel off and found that the handle and cable were OK but the end near the latch was disconnected. It had a swaged on loop but I could not figure out where it attached. Can someone provide a picture or description?
