Front Windows Come Off Track Due to Broken Sash Brackets on Pontiac Grand Am

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.
I was rolling down my driver side rear window one morning and I heard some sort of pop, or weird sound. I tried rolling it back up, but it didn't work. I was able to move the window upwards so it looked closed, but it would gradually fall down. Then I tried to push it downwards to maybe put it back on track, but now it's stuck in the door and won't move down or up.
found parts at auto zone about $9.00. took door apart, had to grind off old clips with small grinder glued new clips on with epoxy put back together took about an hour and a half.
My driver's side window is held up by a stick.

what is the name of the brackets that hold sash clips to window and to the window regulator. Its "L" shaped so I would think its called a "L" bracket, but cant seem to find it at the parts store
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.
had this fixed window went down in the well and would not come back up BRACKET BROKE OFF, WILL I RECIEVE MY PAYMENT BACK BECAUSE I GOT THIS FIXED
both driver side & passenger side window brackets have broken, the part for each window is 297.00 & that is fixing it your self, if you take it in to get fixed it is way over 500.00 for each 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.
Went to roll passenger window down something snapped and it dropped. Power windows , sounds like motor is still working ok

Driver side window appears to be off track
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

Drivers side window falls down due to broken plastic piece.
Window clamps broke of. In front and back

Passenger side window is still good but, a plastic piece and a bracket feel off so window won't go up or down when using power. Took door panel off to inspect the problem now looking for the plastic clip piece to purchase hopefully separately.
I'm having the same issue with my car. Does anyone know if you can just replace the brackets or do I have to replace the whole thing.
