Driver window fell. it broke the clips on the 2 wires that run up an down to move the window. to many ppl tell me different things. just need to know if i can just replace the 2 plastic clips, buy a brand new window or buy a new regulator?
You can buy the replacement clips from NAPA, O'Reilly, etc. They are called "Window Sash Clips" and they are fairly inexpensive. the hard part is removing the old clips from the window-they are epoxied on.

I had the same problem with a BMW that I had. On mine the actual wire broke. It has to be the wire or the clips. If you can't get to the dealer may have to be contacted. They have special tools to do this type of fix. This is done on purpose by the manufacturer so that you have to go to them for repairs. Sorry.
probly need to take the door apart and see whats keeping it from rolling up. If the motor went bad theres your problem but if a clip or something broke loose and fell it may have wedged itself in the lifting mechanism
the cable on your window motor broke most likley or could be the clips on the window itself the motor assembly is about 150.00 if u are nit mechanically inclined or dont have the right tools take it to a body shop their rates are cheaper than a mechanic
There really is no cable. The power window runs on tracks inside the door, which is attached to a motor which is also inside the door. It's very tough to get to to fix it, lots of screws and you would need to take the door panel off. It's not something I even try to fix myself, and I consider myself very mechanically inclined. I have replaced a window motor once, and took a large chunk of meat and skin out of my finger in the process. Hope it helps. If you want to try fixing it yourself just know, it's VERY complicated.
