Window Won't Roll Due to Loose Regulator Mounting Bolts on Toyota Corolla

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.

Went to roll down my window and the glass fell all the way to the bottom. Took door panel off and the plastic clip that holds the glass was broken and the regulator bar was bent. Not sure how much this is going to cost to fix.

2006 Corolla has a rattle in the front passenger door. When I roll down the window the rattle stops. When I roll the window back up, it seems ok for a while until it starts rattling again at a later time.

It's not fixed, not sure what to do. Going to be costly and I live on a fixed income. One day recently, was driving the car and hit the button to roll down the front passenger window and the window basically came out of the track/trough. So got a friend to hold it up while I hit button again to roll window back up and now I can't use the window, VERY FRUSTRATING! Is this a recall issue yet and can I get it fixed for free or a very limited amount.
Just happened to our son's 2005 corolla. Pappas toyota estimated approx $800 dollars. The cheap plastic clips that hold the window onto the regulator broke, and requires a new glass panel with new clips ($180 for the part new, $150 for used). The regulator was mangled......cheap crap..local mechanic fixing for $580....Toyota needs to add 2005 to recall! ours has only 50,000 miles!

I suspect this is what is going on with my Corolla. When I roll down the driver's power window, something binds and the window stops three quarters into the operation. The door panel even bulges as you can hear the motor working to resolve the issue then with a 'Pop!' it works past the apparent obstruction and the window falls home with a bang. I really should get that looked at.
It is riduculous! The brackets that hold the window up or some sort of cheap plastic. The window has fallen into the door and try finding someone who works on this....we actually have taken the door apart in an effort to fix it ourselves to no avail..thanks Toyota for the junk we have to live with everyday!
