Front Windows Come Off Track Due to Broken Sash Brackets on Oldsmobile Alero

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.

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.

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

window on passenger front side squeeking
I have two windows that the plastic brackets have broken plus all of my window electronic motors due not work. One when it gets too hot or too cold it will not work, drivers side of course. The others just stopped working
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.
Both sides, not fixed yet. Can't afford it.

Passenger side window sash breaks easily. Dealership has the replacement sash. Probably the same type quality so I expect to have to change that again. Glass or window shops have the epoxy. Don't use JB weld. In case the sash breaks again, you don't want to have to replace the glass too!
