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.

    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 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.

    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!
