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 passenger side window has fallen off the track twice since I've had the car. It's starting to do it again.

My driver's side window was off track and would raise up and go down at an angle. My brother took the inside door panel off and found that the problem was one broken sash bracket. He replaced it, but the repair only lasted about six months. Then I took my car to All-in-One Automotive on Callahan Dr. on June 3, 2010. I told them the problem and how my brother fixed it but how it did not last. So they replaced the window motor and regulator to the tune of $322.91. I was so mad, but the shop insisted it was necessary. I get angrier every time I think about it, and seeing this website's information did not help matters any! Stella N. Clark. email@example.com.
