I don't know of any metal replacement parts for plastic window attachments brackets. Perhaps something in the window mechanism is bent or binding causing undue strain on the plastic clips. I have not heard of repeated failure of these clips before. Does anyone else out there have something to add?

I have had all four of my windows in my 1999 Grand Am do that 3 times each. I am now on the fourth time with 3 of them! I would say that is a serious design flaw!
