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.

Driver's side window lift failed - had to replace both the window AND lift assembly. Passenger side window in the process of doing the same.
My driver side comes off track occasionally, somehow each time it gets back on track. But more recently all 3 of my other windows have done the same thing. I haven't fixed them becuase the last time I got a quote it was around $250 per window.
