SOURCE: driver side window regulator
I would suggest replacing the whole regulator. They do offer the plastic slide pieces seperatly but usually the regulators bend and cause premature breakage of new component. If you can just replace the slides-remove the regulator and drill out existing piece if it is broken off in regulator. Next take a ball peen hammer and peen new metal into a mushrrom to secure it to existing regulator. I would remove the slider from the glass and push window all the way up and secure with a suction cup to keep it from falling down. Then take off the 2 screws securing the motor harness(disconnect the battery because one wire is hot and pay attention to the placement of the wires when they are resecured-it will just work in the opposite fashion if the polarities are reversed). Then take out the nuts and bolts securing the regulator to the door frame. If you figured out how to take off a 126 door panal you should be able to figure out the regulator position in the shell. Once the regulator is out remove the motor and secure it to the new regulator. Inspect the teeth on the motor and lube with grease (white lithium grease is what I use-wheel bearing grease is fine but it can be messy). Then "fish" new regulator into the door and secure nuts(use red locktight so they do not loosen up in the future).Then slide window down and slide in new plastic slides into window glass frame-you will want to leave the regulator loose and may have to start one of the slides before you secure regulator to door. Lube up the run channels and slides with grease. Snug regulator and operate window with regulator partially loose to let window find the best position with the lease stress and then secure regulator. It isn't as bad as it looks and with a new regulator it will be more self explanitory. Worse case senario remove the other rear panal and copy that regulator position. Good luck I hope I have been helpful.

You will first need to remove the door panel on the inside. Then you will need to remove the window glass from the track it rests in. Then you need to undo all the screws that attach the regulator inside the door. At the top of the door where the glass slides up and down remove the inner and outer window track guides. Then very carefully maneuver the regulator up and out the top of the door. Reverse the procedure to replace. It sounds easy, but you need to almost be double jointed to do this. So, have great patience while doing this task. Good luck.

Your best bet is to go through your local dealership. They will have the part you need and it should be the exact one for your car.

You can buy a new one at the dealer, depending how versatile you are, you can get one at the junk yard. Many of them let you pull your own parts and sell them to you cheaper.

Yes it is. They will need to be drilled out. Thats the best way, some people try to put bolts on, but I dont advise it.
