the rollers that hold the drivers door window broke off don't know how to fix

thought it was the guide / not motor..but but the whole assembly..put it the rollers inside the bottom of the window chanel..and that roller that is revited on the window bottom..that goes up and down the rear guide..broke off the finding that whole assembly is impossible..all i need is a new roller and see if i can bolt it on..rediculous..screwed up the regulator bent the one roller piece..and it really pissed me off as i could have hammered the old one out also..the motor and regulator were just replaced 3 yrs ago..
Had to re weld it onto the track

My Driver side window just stopped about 1/3 of the way up yesterday. I took off the panels and discovered that the roller guide that is attached to the bottom framing of the window itself had just worn out and was detached from the track the roller guide is supposed to ride in. The Car is 22 years old. So this is something that one could reasonably understand happening. The roller guide is riveted to the bottom frame and housing that holds the window. I am seeking someone to hire who understands these problems and can fix this for me. Besides that the car is in MINT condition.
