Front passenger side window came off track and fell inside the door.
Bought a new window track online for 20 bucks.It came with the motor, but it was horrible. So I took the plastic white clips off the new and popped them on the old window bracket. Never had to remove anything from the car. Patience Patience Patience

My front driver side window will not go up completely. When it's raining outside, it gets stuck and will not roll up at all
My mounting tabs on my driver window broke in half! Both of them. Its not expensive to fix if you can do it yourself but it's difficult reaching the front tab.

White plastic kit decided to break when a kid slammed my car door. Took off door panel used JB Weld and reattached clips together, rolled up window, Took the window crank handle off and kept it off. Window permanently stays in up position. It's annoying, as at the time this happened it was over $300 to repair for the parts kit that included a whole bunch of stuff that I didn't need. The solution, the clips cost $1.29 each, but you can't buy them independently you have to buy the kit...
Front and back Windows come off of tracks due to broken cable housing at the motor.
Replaced all window regulators. 10/2015
Window fell down
Clips broke off motor.
i fixed my passenger window broken brackets by removing the door panel adjusting the window so i could get to the 10 mm bolts holding the broken bracket piece. i then took a piece of flat thin metal and drilled a hole for the 10 mm bolt to go through. i reinstalled the metal piece, bolt and broken back piece(as the broken piece has the threaded insert to hold in place. then i drilled two small holes through the metal piece and the bottom of the part attached to the window and put small machine screws and nuts through them !! holding up fine so far...
The sash brackets broke twice in a matter of three months. I replaced the old window unit with one from a junk yard, and that one broke three months later. I have not fixed it the second time yet, I am looking for new sash brackets to replace the old ones.
3 of the 4 windows plastic window sash retainer clips have broken making windows inoperable used cheap screwdrivers as wedge to hold them in up position, when I need lowered I pull screw driver while holding window glass get to desired position and reinsert screwdriver between window and door frame. the plastic used must be defective as so many reports of this issue.
