Report: Front Windows Come Off Track Due to Broken Sash Brackets
Pontiac Grand Am Problem
Average Mileage: 117,762 mi (48,000 mi - 200,000 mi)
The front window sash brackets may break causing the window to come off track. Our technicians tell us that new brackets are available and can be installed on the old window glass if it is not damaged.

The two brackets holding the window snapped in half. Trying to find just the brackets now. Also trying to figure out how to get the old brackets off the window.

Four times now - front windows have come off track & I've had to pay to have the doors taken off and windows replaced as they break in the process. Not cheap for a recurring problem.

The brackets broke on mine before I bought the car with 52,000 miles. I didn't realize that was the problem until the other bracket broke and my window never rolled back up. These parts cost around $80 from the dealer or you can get a whole new system for $40 for both doors online (the Aero uses the same type). Obviously fixed the problem.
I have the same problem, the first time with the passenger side window brackets breaking now I currently have the same issue on my drivers side. Gotta wait til I can get it fixed because the passenger side cost about $275 to fix. It's crazy how both sides have the same issue

The driver side window fell into the door well and would not come back up. When I would push on the controller to attempt to get the window to come back up, I would hear a horrible grinding noise. I thought the window had broken and the pieces of glass were getting caught in the motor. Took it the mechanic and he took the door apart. I was told that the clips had broken of the window and the motor had broken as well. We found parts at a junk yard so we saved a couple dollars but to get the window working again it cost me just under $300.
