Window Won't Roll Due to Loose Regulator Mounting Bolts on Toyota Corolla

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The bolts attaching the front door window glass to the window regulator may come loose. This can cause the window regulator to become damaged and possibly causing the window glass to break. Some 2003 & 2004 models have been recalled for the issue.

Went to roll down my window and the glass fell all the way to the bottom. Took door panel off and the plastic clip that holds the glass was broken and the regulator bar was bent. Not sure how much this is going to cost to fix.
2006 Corolla has a rattle in the front passenger door. When I roll down the window the rattle stops. When I roll the window back up, it seems ok for a while until it starts rattling again at a later time.
Window does not roll up without help. May leave gap. Roll down, push window back in line,roll back up while applying pressure to hold in place.
front passenger side window off track, rolled up and down but when roll down not uniform tilted and stuck.
Just happened to our son's 2005 corolla. Pappas toyota estimated approx $800 dollars. The cheap plastic clips that hold the window onto the regulator broke, and requires a new glass panel with new clips ($180 for the part new, $150 for used). The regulator was crap..local mechanic fixing for $580....Toyota needs to add 2005 to recall! ours has only 50,000 miles!
Recall of the bolts were fixed back in 2010. The window hadn't been the same since. I don't roll the window down much but when I do it sticks. Now it can't be rolled down due to the bolts coming loose and regulator now bent. Not able to roll window all the way up and it comes forward. This is due to the recall which wasn't properly fixed. Toyota doesn't want to fix it and charge me $455.00. Are you kidding me?? Really ?? I am trying to get this fixed because a recall shouldn't have to be repaired especially after the window was working fine before the recall!!
I've had the window replaced twice because of this. The second time, the window cracked and exploded, sending broken glass in on me. Never received a recall about this. The third window makes the same sound as the first two. This explosion is a problem waiting to happen. Will Toyota cover this??
It's not fixed, not sure what to do. Going to be costly and I live on a fixed income. One day recently, was driving the car and hit the button to roll down the front passenger window and the window basically came out of the track/trough. So got a friend to hold it up while I hit button again to roll window back up and now I can't use the window, VERY FRUSTRATING! Is this a recall issue yet and can I get it fixed for free or a very limited amount.
I suspect this is what is going on with my Corolla. When I roll down the driver's power window, something binds and the window stops three quarters into the operation. The door panel even bulges as you can hear the motor working to resolve the issue then with a 'Pop!' it works past the apparent obstruction and the window falls home with a bang. I really should get that looked at.
It is riduculous! The brackets that hold the window up or some sort of cheap plastic. The window has fallen into the door and try finding someone who works on this....we actually have taken the door apart in an effort to fix it ourselves to no avail..thanks Toyota for the junk we have to live with everyday!
went to roll down my front drivers side window and it fell into the door shaft. took it to a toyota dealership... $500 to replace to window regulator that was bent due to the window falling.
