broken electrical connector on compressor

I have a Trane xe1000 and one of the electrical connectors on the compressor has broken off. The shaft broke inside the compressor. I have attached pictures of where the connector was and the broken off connector. Is there any option for a repair?

You’ll need a new compressor. Looks like it blew the charge as well.

I agree.
The base material of the connector is glass or ceramic .
Any attempt to repair it could be dangerous because there is oil under pressure behind it.

I was pretty sure it was not repairable. I have already started getting some quotes for a new system. Thank you all for the responses.
