i have the same issue. withe the bracket mounted to the glass. the roller broke off and window is stuck up. anybody have any fixes or know were to find the parts?
thought it was the guide / not motor..but but the whole assembly..put it in..got 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 rivet..omg...now 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..
Window is floppy at full up position when door is opened. I have to be careful closing the door pulling glass forward to prevent slamming the glass. I need a roller for the glass that fits into the riser. Also, the side by the mirror is also lose contributing to the floppy condition. Problem not fixed at this time.
ROLLER BROKE OFF BOTTOM ON TH EBACK OF THE WINDOW BAR WHERE IT IS RIVITED...WINDOW WILL NOT STAY ON TRACK,.......IS THERE MAYBE AN AFTER MARKER ONE THAT ATTCHES TO THE HOLE WITH A WASHER AND BOLT??? I FOUND AANOTHER WINDOW AT THE SALVAE AYRD FOR 45.00....DOES THE HOLE REGULAR HAVE TO BE RIVITED FREE AND TAKEN OUT TO TAKE OLD WINDOW OUT AND PUT NEW WINDOE IN?
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.
