Question about BMW Cars & Trucks
The glass in the door window is not normally glued in the regulator track but is pressed in the rubber with the use of soap which dries out and that means that the pressure of the metal is what holds the glass in place. There will be difficulties if the window guides are incorrectly adjusted and the glass is allowed to go up an angle instead of straight up.. Normally the track at the back of the door is fixed and the front track is adjustable to hold the glass correctly

SOURCE: Replacing window regulator
after the door panel is removed remove the 2 10mm bolts that hold the window to the regulator. then you will be able to slide the glass out of the door. once the glass is out of the door use a paint marker and trace around where the broken plastic peace is that you need to change. then remove and expoy the new in place

Testimonial: "it's funny, as i was typing my question, it ocurred to me that perhaps i could just cut a couple of holes in the door frame. great minds think alike!"
Is it the kind where a bolt goes through the regualtor into that "clip"? If so, they are usually part of the glass and you would need a window to get them. I can tell you that if I worked in a glass shop then I would keep the old ones laying around just for such an emergency.
