Window Won't Roll Due to Loose Regulator Mounting Bolts on Pontiac Vibe

The bolts attaching the front door window glass to the window regulator may come loose. This can cause the window regulator to become damaged and possibly causing the window glass to break. Some 2003 & 2004 models have been recalled for the issue.

The rear plastic connector on drivers window broke. The window came out of track. Thankful I caught it and it did not break. One of the arms on the regulator was bent. Looking for a replacement plastic piece. Glueing it doesn't seem like a reasonable fix considering the stress put on it during window use.

Front drivers side window gets stuck and won't open.
Need to again repair passenger window as plastic connector between regulator bolt and glass fractured in half. Can't just buy replacement plastic saddles for glass but rather GM will only sell me a $400.00+ window!
I brought it to dealer after getting a notice and it was taken care of
I had a problem opening and closing the driver's window. Someone told me that their window had shttered and then I found out about a rcall so I did not open it unless absloutely necessar until the dealer got the parts.It took a while because they had to get special bolts made. I gound out when the dealer had the parts and called for an appointment myself and it is fine now.
Have had to replace drivers side window three times at 400 bucks apiece due to plastic connector to regulator breaking
