Yes, the cable is one unit and continuous with the two ends wrapped around the spool and retained by the spool. One end wraps up the spool face and the other down it so when the motor runs one way, one cable is pulled and wraps around the spool while the other unwraps at the same rate. The regulator in my photos is in the full window down position so all of these observations are with the spool and cable in this position. The loose sheath/cable end in your photo is the one going to the lower end of the track (when the cable is pulled on it would lower the window) and is the cable shown in my second photo of the spool. As you can see from my photo, the cable starts its winding in the second groove from the top end of the spool. It then is wound about 3-1/8 turns around the spool and the end of the cable is captured in the lower end of the spool. The other sheath/cable end that is still tight in your photo (when pulled on it would raise the window) enters the spool on the second groove on the opposite side of the other cable end and is wound about 1-1/8 turns around the spool with the cable end captured in the top end of the spool under the spool retaining cover. As far as I know, the regulator in my photos is a passenger side like yours and the part number on the tag to check to make sure is B117U0390. Let me know if I can be of any more assistance or if you need more photos.
